Tomorrow - Five Minute Friday

6:58 PM


How did a day that started out so good end so badly.  Our days are never perfect.  In all actuality they are far from perfect.  We have ups and downs but for the most part, I am blessed with good days. Some of the best days of my life are taking place as I write this post. 


However, I am in need a of a grand redo of bedtime.  I wish I could go back and erase the moments that just transpired.  I can't. I can't turn back time, oh how I wish I could. What can I do? 

I can bow my head, repent, step into grace, learn from my mistake, and lay my hand in his allowing his embrace to overtake this shame. 

As I eagerly await a redo for tomorrow's bedtime I will rest in knowing my sins have been forgiven, forgotten, and new mercies are waiting for me tomorrow. 

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow, your only a day away.  I know The Son will come out tomorrow and meet me where I am and take me to where he is. 

What about you, are you ever in need of a tomorrow full of mercy? A grand redo.  Won't you take a moment and ask him to grace you today, tonight with his unfathomable love and tender mercies?Why wait for tomorrow? He is here NOW.

    1. Marie,
      Thank you. I was in desperate need to hear these words tonight as I get ready to end the day. I hate it when the nights explode in meltdowns, breaks my heart for him, me, and my husband. So thankful there is an abundance of grace.

  4. Oh dear Laura, I've had so many moments I wish I could re-do. (Temper tantrums are a real thing, I've discovered.) Thank God for grace! He takes our weaknesses, when we lay them at His feet, and shows His strength through us. Praying for you and me both!

  5. Love how you used Son rather than sun. My best friend got lost on a sunflower field when she was little. When the national Guard found her she said Jesus and the puppies woke me up. Her license plate says Sonflwr for "son follower"

    1. Colleen I know exactly what you mean. Every morning I rise is a promise fulfilled! What a thought, everyday He fulfills at least one promise and that is His mercies are new. So I will cling to that promise while I wait for others to come to pass!
