The Ever-Present “Now”

President Lyndon B. Johnson is credited with saying, “Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.

I have my own “Take” on that and I would like to share it with you at this time:

I believe that yesterday is gone forever and nothing that happened in the past can ever harm us again and we should never be concerned with what is past. As the Scripture has said, “Let the dead bury the dead.” The past is not coming back! What happened in the past is not coming back the same as it was before!

Having said that, let me tell you that the future is promised to no one. There is no guarantee that tomorrow is going to come … and for a lot of people, it definitely will never come!

This leaves us with the reality that the only time we ever have to get anything we want to do done is “The Now.” (This moment in which we live.)

So, the best time to start anything is “Now.” It is impossible to begin a journey yesterday and we might not be here to start it tomorrow.

    1. Learning from History has very demonstrably never taught anybody a blessed thing because people are repeating History over and over again with each passing day. If it were not so, wars would end.
