Do you carry yesterdays worries
over into tomorrow?
At my part time place of employment
it is a Christian based company
and the staff is reading the book
The Power of Positive Thinking,
bu Norman Vincent Peale,
it is a good book, this weeks
chapter was called, How to Break
the Worry Habit.
And I used to be a bad worrier!
and of course I still have my moment
but I am better than I used to be,
thanks be to God, but there was a
story in here about a man who was
a worrier and carried his worries
over to the next day.. and this is
what he did to stop that..
I thought it was pretty cool..
At the end of his day, next to his
office door he had a Daily calendar
and before he would leave work every
day he would tear off that days sheet
and say this prayer..
Lord you gave me this day, I did the best
I could with it and you helped me and I
Thank You. I made some mistakes. and
that was when i didnt follow you advice,
and Im sorry. Forgive me. But I had some
victories and successes too and I am grateful
for you guidance. But now Lord, the day is over
and Im through with it, so I give it back to you.
But the one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind me, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before me, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.
