Yesterday ended at midnight

Write it down. Tape it to your bathroom mirror (or write it in lipstick as Jessica has been known to do). “Yesterday ended at midnight.” Sometimes we need to be reminded that yesterday is over and the Lord’s mercies are brand-new today (Lamentations 3:23). Whether yesterday was full of victories, draws, or defeats, there is grace for us to get up and run again today. I know that our todays sometimes carry the consequences of our yesterdays, but through the power and life of Christ within us we still have the ability to live today in a way that honors Him and blesses the world around us. Proverbs 24:16 tells us that a righteous man falls seven times—even the good guys fall sometimes—but he gets up again. Unlike Cinderella who had everything revert back to the way it used to be when the clock struck twelve, we have the promise that with every new day there comes new grace and new opportunities for life, love, healing, hope, and breakthrough. Let’s live today to the hilt. And then let’s let it die at midnight.
