Happy New Year! The dawning of a new year is often accompanied by a time of self-reflection and personal re-direction. Are you in need of a fresh start this new year? Well my beautifully imperfect friend, you are not alone!
Despite our best efforts, mere self-determination and iron-will often leave us falling short of our goals and resolutions. It is in these moments that we must humbly acknowledge that in Christ alone our hope is found. We find strength and shelter in the midst of our days by recognizing that God offers peace, wisdom, and courage to those who are willing to trust in Him. By God's mercy and grace He continually offers us a new day and a new dawn.
We wish you a new year brimming with blessings of love, joy, warmth, and laughter. May you walk forward in faith confident of God’s eternal love and assured of His everlasting promises.
We welcome you to visit us at clothedwithtruth.com for a wide selection of hand-crafted sterling silver & fine pewter Serenity Prayer & Recovery jewelry to serve as gentle reminders to trust in God to fully sustain you through each and every day of your journey.
"Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow"
There are two days in every week
about which we should not worry,
Two days which should be kept free of 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 gone.
The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW
With its possible adversities, its burdens, its larger promise.
TOMORROW is also beyond our immediate control.
TOMORROW, the 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.
Any man can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
– YESTERDAY and TOMORROW –
That we break down.
It is not the experience of TODAY that drives men mad.
It is remorse or bitterness for something which happened YESTERDAY
And the dread of what TOMORROW may bring.
Let us, therefore, live but ONE day at a time.
