Living one day at a time
Every month I conduct DWI classes for the judges of the 29th and 40th Judicial District Courts. These classes are held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. For those who have a problem, I stress that to change, it’s a “one day at a time” process.
The first night I share the following that I received years ago that I frequently read to keep me focused. I hope it will also help you to realize the day that is most important in your life.
“There are two days in every week about which we should not worry – two days
which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is YESTERDAY with its mistakes and cares, its faults and
blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a
single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is
The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW with its large promise
and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will
rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is as yet unborn.
This leaves only one day – TODAY. Anyone can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only when you and I add the burdens of these two awful eternities –
YESTERDAY and TOMORROW – that we break down. It is not the experience of TODAY that drives us mad – it is remorse or bitterness for something which
happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what TOMORROW may bring.”
LET US, THEREFORE, LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!
(See Matthew 6:34)
