Life consists of three time frames:

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

These three time periods are relative to each of us. The past has come and gone; tomorrow doesn’t yet exist; today is all we really have in which to live, love, and labor.

The past is over. You cannot bring it to yourself. Someone so stately quoted: “Yesterday is in the tomb, Tomorrow is in the womb, Today is the beginning of the new.”

You cannot unscramble eggs; there is no do-over for what’s past.

THE REARVIEW MIRROR PERSON misses what is happening today because they always look back to yesterday.

Decisions for this kind of person are based on what they know and feel comfortable with.

“By the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept when we remembered Zion” (old days). Psalm 137:1

God is saying, let’s go forward and allow Me to fulfill My divine plan in your life!

Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery, but today is reality.

Yesterday was instructive; tomorrow is unknown; today is the proving ground.

Yesterday is in the tomb, and tomorrow is in the womb.


While it is important to remember the lessons of the past, it is not good to dwell, morbidly or longingly, on the past. Look to the past, but don’t be chained to it.

“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Isaiah 43:18-19

Our prayer is today: you look to God and release all things into His hands, knowing He will forgive you and help you heal while you forgive others.

Begin letting go of all the things holding you back that you can’t change and start working on a better today♥️
