Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Recently, I realized that all the photos and mementos in my life represent the past. I considered removing them, then I wondered if those reminders of people, places, and things are might serve some purpose in my life today.
To avoid being mixed in with the “Yesterday” of life, I needed to discover the true value of these items as they would relate to Today and Tomorrow.
When God’s people crossed the Jordan River into the promised land, He told their leader, Joshua, to choose 12 men and have each one take a stone from the middle of the river and carry it to their campsite.
Then Joshua set up the stones as a memorial so that when future generations asked what do the stones mean to you, to me or to us – they could tell them about God’s faithfulness in holding back the waters while they crossed the Jordan River.
As followers of Christ Jesus, it’s good for us to have tangible evidence of God’s help in the past. Those mementos remind us that His faithfulness continues, that we can follow Him with courage and trust and confidence, into the future.
One “stone” may also help others know that God’s hand is mighty, as they encourage us to fear the Lord.
The mementos of what God has done for us can become building blocks for Today and Tomorrow.
These days everybody wants to be in control, wants to be a leader but never really follows.
No information, no direction, or way too much pride. Yet all they must do is remember to bow down and ask for the Lord to be their guide.
Proverbs 3:5:6 says “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Only if we do this, can we truly begin to tackle homeless issue. There is no pain and sorrow, suffering or sickness on earth that heaven cannot heal! Heaven is love, peace, kindness and happiness.
All the evil around us is no match for the God that is within us! Don’t hate God’s correction, because he corrects those who He loves.
Precise memories of Yesterday can strengthen your faith for Today and Tomorrow.
