..Seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him (Col 3:9-10)~ God’s mercies were new to you this morning. As you step into His new creation, This new day, do it with a new attitude and a new outlook. You can’t be carrying yesterday’s baggage if you’re looking for a brighter today and tomorrow! Let that mess go! Lay aside that weighty baggage you’re carrying. Why focus on what you have ZERO impact on? You can’t change what was, but you have so much potential for what can be. It all depends on how you handle what IS! Life is too short to carry all the ‘stuff’ from days gone by. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day (2 Cor 4:16). You are renewed in God’s mercy every morning. Every day is a new chance, with new opportunities and new blessings. Carpe Diem! – But the only way you can do that is by putting aside all of the fears, angers, grudges and faults of yesterday and focusing on what God has for you NOW: Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? (Isa 43:19). You can’t catch the new blessings if your hands are full of old grudges!
