Your past trust in God:
Failing or victory,
Forgetting or praising.
But that’s history.
Your future trust in Him:
Don’t have to hurry
Because it’s yet to be.
Not to worry.
But trusting God:
This moment, now,
That’s all that matters.
You’ll see how.
— Charles B. Mayes

Regretting things or living in the blessings of the past won’t help us, neither will worrying about the future. We must ask ourselves, “Can I trust in Jesus now?” Yes! That’s all we need to do.
