special delivery... open TODAY

"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,  I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14

Dear Child,
I see your pain, i hear your cry, i feel your hurt.  Mistakes, bad decisions we all have made them.  But, we don't need to stay in them.

Don't live in the regrets of yesterday.  They only carry us down a dark, downward spiral to sorry, hopelessness and depression...  paralyzing our efforts to move on. 

Yesterday is written in ink and can't be erased. Let it go. It is poison for the soul.

What we have is today.  It is a clean sheet ready for a new start, a change, a beginning for a better tomorrow.  When we focus on today, our tomorrows will get better.  The pain of yesterday will fade and become a good memory of what we learned -- valuable lessons, growing us stronger and wiser.  And then, my Child, an appreciation for our season of yesterday woes will grow.

In your voice i hear your uncertainty and doubt, feeling a change is too late. Will things improve? Yes! I can promise it will, because God promised it first.  We need only to look at His Word and Him to see how over and over again, people can and do overcome struggles.  His promises are clear and true... God works all things to the good for those who love Him... and i know you do.  Renew your love with Him, tell Him how you feel and let Him guide your decisions. 

Where life let's us down, God raises us up.
Where  discouragement settles in, God replaces with encouragement.
Where our plans fail, God's plan prevails.

Trust Him with today, and then tomorrow do it again.  As much as i love you, God's love for you is even greater.  Can you imagine that?? Because it is the unshakeable, undeniable Truth.

I'm in your corner, cheering for you, claim your freedom from the past,
I can't wait to see the wonders of what God has in store for you!
Believe and receive,
I love you to the moon and beyond... and then, God takes over,

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
