If you keep comparing yesterday to today than you are living in the past. Take a moment to decide whether you will live with only what yesterday was. Instead do what you can today with hope for an even better tomorrow. Let’s take a moment to discuss, “It’s a New Day.”
Every new day brings with it hope and a chance for change in some area. When you wake up with a new attitude about your life, you have decided to fulfill plans God has intended for you. Otherwise, you may be getting in the way because of a misconception that it needs to ‘stay the way it was‘ even if it was not the best. Why make a choice that can lead to more pain, disappointments and away from God’s best?
If you can’t let go, then you are unwilling to walk out God’s plans for your life. Our stubbornness can lead to hardness in our hearts. It can cause us to be unchanging and unbending. When we do these things, we are causing ourselves to be held back. As much as we may find it reasonable to base everything on our circumstances and disappointments, we are still mostly hurting and limiting ourselves.
Too many of us, hold on to things that we must get rid of. We hold it as if somehow it will be the same as it was or perhaps even turn out better. But if you think about it, what are you doing when you allow this? For the most part, you are reliving what you need to put a stop to and get past. Even if it was good at some point, it is not like that now or maybe it just ended and you just have to move on now. Whatever it is, why not be totally honest about it and choose to make necessary steps toward a new path with different results.
Don’t be afraid of change. Don’t allow yourself to be held back because you can’t believe there can be a better way. With God on your side, there is always a better way. He has His best waiting for you and desires to continuously bring you forward and higher than you have been before. Decide that what you had is done and be ok with it. Embrace God’s will for your life.
Some of our hardest days can lead to better tomorrows when we learn from them. It is not always fair what we face in life but there are things we can grow from. Yes, there are times; you can question the cause of what bought you to where you are. How did you get here? But it only gets clearer when you can be honest about all these things. So don’t make it about ‘a certain time of the year‘ to change but take a moment to decide that you are moving past yesterday into a better tomorrow one step at a time with God on your side.
I would love to hear what you believe you need to let go of in order to move forward. Can you acknowledge the need for change to embrace a “New Day?” As difficult as it may be to adjust and move forward, remember you can do so, even it takes baby steps to incorporate changes. Share your story and bring encouragement to others. Thank you so much for taking moments with me.

What’s wrong with comparing today to yesterday? It can be a good way to see what progress your making if you’re trying to change or track improvements
I’m holding to some grudges that are not easy to overcome. My ‘plan’ was to just get away from my triggers and restraints, but life is funny that way, and now I have to deal with everything at once – and more! Art and nature are my personal healers – since I got no time for either, I try to make art through food since we all gotta eat every day! Hence all the colors on my plates 😀
great read and reminder it reminds me of the proverb that if you are living in the past you are depressed but if you are living in the future you are anxious….
It’s true to get rid of things that don’t matter anymore. I feel like holding on to something that could be hurting us.
I really like what you wrote!
This is a great and encouraging article. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
