Everyday is a New Day

Tomorrow is a new day. I am not held down by chains of yesterday. I can't change yesterday or even what I've already lived today but I can claim victory over tomorrow in Jesus' name. It's about the daily surrender. 

Despite my fruitless toiling away over the last few days and maybe even the last week, I'm stepping out of that heart funk I had fallen into. I'm running to Jesus right now. At the end of my day, I choose to run to my safe place in His arms. 

The name of The Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." {Proverbs 18:10 NIV}

I feel encouraged by the hope of a new beginning. Letting go of what I can't change and what is out of my hands is the best thing I can do right now. I have to release those things and surrender them into the hands of God. 


Tonight I'm content with the process. Jesus tells us in His Word that in this world we will have trouble. We will have heartache. We will face hard times. We will struggle. But we must take heart. We must cling to the truth. We must run to our strong tower. For He has overcome the world. He has won the battle. He has claimed the victory over me. 

Today I recieved counsel from a very wise person who reminded me to surrender my plans/my desires/my purposes to the Lord each and every morning. 

"Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." {Proverbs 19:20-21 NIV}

I needed this verse so badly today. I'm content with God's purpose prevailing. It is well worth the wait.
