Last night my Mom shared a story about my Grandmother. Apparently when my Grandma was a little girl her mother would allow them to have a dinner of strawberry shortcake once a year when the strawberries came ripe. My Mom said that sometimes it’s good to change the rules for a day, and I couldn’t agree more. The problem is that sometimes we change the rules for more than just a day. When temptation comes, sometimes we get in the mindset that today isn’t that big of a deal. I’ll stand strong tomorrow, we think. And then tomorrow comes and we live a deja vu. The thing is: today counts. If you hear God’s voice today, don’t delay in responding because today is of utmost importance. You don’t know if you’ll have tomorrow; all you know you have for certain is what is right in front of you now. What you do today matters more than what you did yesterday, a week ago, or a year ago. You cannot change what happened in the past, but you do have control over today. So make the most of today – refusing to be debilitated by your past and refusing to live in tomorrow.
