Did you begin?
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
With new years well underway, did you make resolutions? Did you begin those resolutions? To begin something to bring change to your life, you must begin it. You must start it right now.
As for this day... if it is beginning, make it the best that it can be. Do not waste time thinking or worrying about things ahead or problems you face. God only wants you to experience them one time... not a hundred times going through your head with worry about what might happen. Let him handle it. It is NOT easy to refocus your thoughts away from the worries and problems, but you can do it. One problem or worry at a time. Tomorrow will come on its own with it's own challenges.
The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. Luke 8:14
