The Lifebuilder's Creed

Today is the most important day of my life.
Yesterday with its success and victories, struggles and failures
is gone forever.
The past is past.
I cannot relive it. I cannot go back and change it.
But I will learn from it and improve my Today.

Today. This moment. NOW.
It is God's gift to me and it is all that I have.

Tomorrow with all its joys and sorrows, triumphs and
troubles isn't here yet.
Indeed, tomorrow may never come.
Therefore, I will not worry about tomorrow.

Today is what God has entrusted to me.
It is all that I have. I will do my best in it.
I will demonstrate the best of me in it -
my character, giftedness, and abilities -
to my family and friends, clients and associates.
I will identify those things that are most important
to do Today,
and those things I will do until they are done.
And when this day is done
I will look back with satisfaction at that
which I have accomplished.

Then, and only then will I plan my tomorrow,
Looking to improve upon Today, with God's help.

Then I shall go to sleep in peace...content.

I just loved this. This is an excerpt from John Maxwell's book "Today Matters" and was written by Dale Witherington.

How did you know what I needed to read today? Thank you for the wonderful message. I tend to get stuck in my past and it has really inhibited my ability to be who I want to be and give my family what they need. I am printing this and putting it everywhere I can in my house! Thanks.
