Today Is a Brand New Day // Positively Speaking // Mark Wilson

Today is a brand new day – a delightful opportunity to begin again. I must not be held hostage by
yesterday’s pain. If my heart remains open, and my spirit is right, yesterday’s pain becomes
today’s gain. I will grow into a better person through the sufferings.

Today is a brand new day – and it needs to stand on it’s own. I will not allow myself to be
seduced by yesterday’s success, nor frustrated by yesterday’s failures. I shall fulfill my duty this
day, and never look backwards for an excuse.

Today is a brand new day – and it’s the only one I have. I refuse to let tomorrow’s concerns steal
today’s joy. If tomorrow is going to be bad – why should it destroy the day I have? That would
mean two bad days instead of just one. I want to make the best of what has been given to me.

Today is a brand new day – a gift from God for the investment of life. It is not to be squandered
by worry or regret. Consider the moments. Moments are the stuff life is made of. They march
by us briskly in an unceasing parade. We can join in the march – or slump sullenly on the
sidewalk, wondering why nobody throws candy anymore.

Today is a brand new day – each sunrise serves to remind us of resurrection power.
No problems, burdens, or concerns are greater than the God who holds this day in his hands.
Each day breathes new life to broken dreams, shattered hopes, and rending disappointments.
Somehow, situations always look better in the morning.

Today is a brand new day – so I’m going to go out and live it.

“This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
