THREE DAYS

“There are three days in the week upon which, and about which I never worry – two carefree days kept sacredly free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is YESTERDAY.  YESTERDAY, with its cares and frets and all its aches and pains, all its faults, its mistakes and blunders has passed forever beyond my recall.            It was mine; it is God’s.

And the other day that I do not worry about is TOMORROW.  TOMORROW, with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its perils, its large promise and poor performance, its failures and mistakes, is as far beyond my mastery as its dead sister -yesterday.         Tomorrow is God’s day, it will be mine.

There is left for myself, then, but one day in the week – TODAY.
Any man can fight the battles of today.  Any woman can carry the burdens of just one day; any man can resist the temptations of today.  It is only when we willfully add the burdens of those two awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow truly such burdens as only the mighty God can sustain, that we break down.  It isn’t the experiences of today that drive men mad.  It is the remorse of what happened yesterday, and fear of what tomorrow might bring.

They are God’s days, leave them to Him.”             -Anonymous

“The clock of life is wound but once.
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop.
At late or early hour.
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed.
To lose one’s health is more;
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
As no man can restore.
The present only is our own,
To  seek to do God’s will;
Tomorrow holds no promise, for
The clock may then be still.”                              -Unknown

With our faith in Christ we can face time and eternity without fear, knowing that God is with us both now and forever.  If we believe in Him, let us redeem the time, using all that God has given us to share what Christ has done for us. But, if you have not yet believed, there is no better time, and there may be no other time than today.

The Apostle wrote, “I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”    2 Corinthians 6:2

  1. What an exciting year. And God continues to bless you as you send out these devotionals. Not only do these weekly devotionals bless so many, but also your book on past ones. Thank you and may God continue ti inspire you through the Holy Spirt as you work so hard to get His word out ! Tha t is what we Christ Flowers are to be about doing., tellling others about Jesus and what He has done for us all.
    Love and Prayers, Joann

  2. Thanks for the encouraging words – we can (and should) only handle one day at a time. I am enjoying your devotional book. It is a real encouragement to me. I’m so glad that I have it. It was good to see you and Joann today although I never got a chance to speak. God bless you both!

  3. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come is an old saying. So we only need to take care of today. Yesterday a lot of things happened and tomorrow’s things to happen are unknown. In this day and age, many worry about the happenings in our country of yesterday. Many worry about what tomorrow will bring because of what happened yesterday. The best way to face life is today. Put your confidence in the Father God who sent Jesus to die for our sins. Have an intimate relationship with HIM! He is our Sovereign Lord. He is in control, so live for HIM today..

  4. This was my first. I am looking forward to many more in the future. I have made a note to remind me on Sunday to buy your book. You are welcome to remind me. May God bless you and Joanne throughout the new year.
