What if I told you the best is yet to come? What if I told you that whatever is in front of you can be better than what was behind you, no matter how good or bad? You probably wouldn't believe me.
I was at my son's hockey practice today. I had been thinking all day about 'the best is yet to come'. Surely, the best is yet to come.
I have felt quite sad today. Quite down. Just because of circumstances. In the eyes of the world and all that it says to me, I am in a dire situation. There is not much work around and there doesn't appear to be anything going on. But what if I see something different?
The boys played a game at the weekend and one of coaches said, "You know, the best is yet to come". Hearing these words confirmed to me that whatever happened in the last game or yesterday in life, it doesn't matter. What matters is the next game. What matters is tomorrow.
What if I choose to believe that the best is yet to come? It means that tomorrow is going to be better than today. It means more work opportunities. Deeper friendships. Better marriages (I already have a fantastic marriage, in case you are wondering). Stronger family ties. Even if I had all of these things today, tomorrow is going to be better.
In the bible, there is an amazing man called Paul. He wrote some incredible life-giving words of guidance and re-assurance. One of them was "I choose to press on towards the goal of life.... not death" (my paraphrasing).
Tomorrow, when you wake and start the day, choose to press on towards something better. If you do this, I know the best is in store for you.
The best is yet to come......
