New every morning…

Leave a comment

The other morning I was thinking about time and how I view time and I experienced a small “aha!” moment. For years I have held to the theory that time seems to go faster as you get older because 1 year is a smaller part of your entire life. When you are 5 years old, 1 year is 1/5 of the whole but when you are 20 years old 1 year is 1/20. So as I approach a big birthday thoughts of 1 year being 1/60 of the whole seems unfathomable. “Aha” moment was that any single day is even less of the whole. So the fact that I made some less than stellar eating choices the day before was a very tiny part of the whole. Yes, I should make better choices but it was one day out of many so I shouldn’t be discouraged. Later in the week as I was proud of myself for going to the gym I realized the same theory applies – 2 days is a small part but everyday I add is a bigger part of the whole. Each day is a small part of my year and each year is a small part of my life. Small parts matter but sometimes I need to remember that it was one day not a lifetime. And tomorrow Lord willing there will be another day. “The Lord’s love never ends; his mercies never stop. They are new every morning; Lord, your loyalty is great. I say to myself, “The Lord is mine, so I hope in him.”
