"Better is the end of a thing than the beginning of it." (Ecclesiastes 7:8, AMPC)
You may have had a rough start, but you don't have to have a rough finish. Better is the end. Don't keep dwelling on the negatives of the past. God is saying, Something better is coming. You may be going through a rough spot today, but better is coming. Don't cancel out the better by dwelling on the regrets, the failures, and what didn't work out. If your mind is always on yesterday, you're going to move in that direction. Better is coming, healing is coming, and breakthroughs are coming. You're not defined by your past; you're prepared by your past. If the past hadn't happened, you wouldn't be prepared for the better that is coming your way. You may have made some mistakes, but you can't do anything about what happened yesterday. Living with guilt is not going to make anything better. It's time to drop it. You'll not only feel a weight lift off of you, but you'll step into the better things God has in store.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for my past, the successes and victories as well as the mistakes and failures. Thank You that the past has prepared me for today and for the better things You have in store for me. I believe breakthroughs are coming, new opportunities are coming, and healings are coming. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
