John 13:3 (NKJV) Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands…
Most certainly, all things have not been put into your hands, but something has been put into your hands. Start there.
Don’t allow what you’d like to have or used to have to distract you from what you do have.
And worse yet, don’t allow what others have to distract you.
We don’t all arrive at God’s planned destination at the same time and we don’t all get there the same way. But rest assured, God has given you what you need right now to achieve what He has planned for your life.
If there is going to be any advancement and improvement in your life it will come from managing well what has already been put into your hands.
Hoping that things will get better, waiting until things get better (and then you’ll work hard), comparing yourself against others, beating yourself up for missed opportunities or for failing—all these are recipes for heartbreak and failure.
- The ONE THING for today: Shoulda, coulda, woulda doesn’t matter today. What does matter is you’re here–take what you’ve got, where you are and make a difference. A better future starts right there.
