Do not say, "Why were the old days better than these?" For it is not wise to ask such questions.
Our best days as Christians are always ahead.
Jesus has promised to return and take us home to God — what better future could there be.
So let's not get distracted with the things of the past. We can thank God for his past blessings, but let's not waste the present with negativity.
Let's make a commitment to redeem our time and trust that the same God who raised Jesus from the dead also holds our future in his hands.
Father God, give me a sense of purpose in each day that you give me life and give me an optimistic outlook on the future. Please help me have a sense of genuine joy knowing that no matter where the road leads me today, I will journey with you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
