Weekly Whisper: Tomorrow is another day

Have you ever had one of those days? You know, the one where you feel like grabbing the nearest permanent black marker and writing a big, giant "FAIL" across your forehead. The one where  you said something you regret. Yelled at your kids. Spent way more money than you should have. Ate the entire package of Oreos. Let someone down. Didn't spend one moment in prayer. 

Those days.

Isn't it awesome that God's mercies are new every morning? Yes, there are consequences for our actions. We may need to apologize, repent, or exercise a little harder. But making poor choices is a part of life. And because of them, we are able to learn, grow, and change.

So straighten your shoulders, take a deep breath, and give yourself a break.

As Joyce Meyer says: "Frustration, complication, and misery are available in abundance. But so is God's grace."

Phrase to meditate on: TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY.

"The faithful love of the Lord never ends. His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning." - Lamentations 3:22, 23


  1. Lynda, I am currently 'digging' in Psalms 25 and verse 7 should be what I stick on my forehead:
    'Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to your mercy remember me for Your goodness sake, O LORD.'
    Can I hear an Amen! :) So thankful that He sees me through his mercy!
    Thanks for this candid post We women need to be reminded-daily-to lighten up on ourselves.

  2. You're absolutely right, Lori. Actually, I had that verse in mind for another week. Our past definitely has a way of holding us back. Thank God for His mercy and grace. :-)
