How do you make it last?
If you are like me, you have a history of great starts with good intentions and lousy finishes with no lasting results. I understand your fear and doubt. I’ve asked myself the same questions: “Can I really change?” and “Can this time really be different from all the times before?”
This time can be different, and you can change, but you are going to have to start living just ONE DAY AT A TIME. Each day brings its own unique challenges. God’s way is to provide for us what is needed to successfully navigate THAT day. If you look past today, you will stop thinking about your relationship with God and start worrying about other things. Jesus tells us not to worry about what tomorrow will bring. Instead our focus should be on TODAY.
