Yesterday was a long day for the Woj tribe and in the past three days, my Taylor girl has experienced four seizures after having none for more than three months.
Some days make you wish that Mulligans applied in life. You know- a do-over would just be… so great.
We don’t get a do-over of yesterday.
But we do get a new today.
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lam. 3:22-24
So whether you said something you wish you hadn’t…
Or were generally impatient, though you tried not to show it…
If you opened your mouth and roadkill crawled out of it (beautiful word picture, huh?)…
Maybe you simply glance at yesterday and whisper to yourself:
I didn’t ask God about that…
Then TODAY is for you.
My sweet friend, Amy, at Full Her Life, presented an incredible reminder tonight:
When you open your mouth to complain,
and find a reason
instead to be grateful.
Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be good.-
Indeed life is good. Very far from perfect. But very good.
When my perfectionistic self holds regrets or wishes for a stronger outcome, better work, or a more excellent standard when there’s none to be had…then I need to remember
because life isn’t perfect,
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17
