The Present Past


Just what if

I

Just what if

You

could change our

ONCE UPON A TIME~

that one moment

UPON A TIME~

"at some time in the past"?

Your

PAST~

the moment before this moment

and now

the moment before that moment.

Right now

you are living in the

PAST

because

today is

the PAST of tomorrow.

Think about it...

if this very second will be your

ONCE UPON A TIME

tomorrow

how are you living in the PAST?

When you look at your

PAST

this way

then

the choices you make today

will change your

PAST.

Hmm...sounds confusing but true.

So if you are in control of your

PAST

in the choices that you make today...

What choices will you make today, knowing it will be your past tomorrow?

Wouldn't it be great that

when you look back on your

PAST

you won't be dwelling on

the what could have beens

the what should have beens

because you

PUT YOU IN HIS STORY

and started your day by

....fixing __________ 's (PUT your name in the blanks)

eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of __________'s faith...Hebrews 12:1

And if

__________ will seek the Lord __________ 's God, and

__________ will find Him if

__________ seeks Him with all

__________'s heart and with all

__________ 's soul. Deuteronomy 4:28-29

~instead of going to other things

to fill those inner hungers

so that when you look back on your past

you won't be saying~

I shouldn't have eaten all that

I shouldn't have drank all that

I shouldn't have Amazon Primed all that

I shouldn't have Facebooked all that...

because

The LORD is ____________ rock,

____________ 's fortress and

____________ deliverer;

____________ 's God

is

____________ 's rock, in whom

____________ takes refuge,

____________ 's shield

and the horn of ____________ 's salvation,

____________ 's stronghold. Psalm 18:2

And instead

running into the arms of the One who

we can say with confidence~ Truly

____________ 's soul finds rest in God;

____________ 's salvation comes from Him.

Truly He is

____________ 's rock and ____________ 's salvation;

He is ____________ 's fortress,

so that ____________ will never be shaken... Yes, _________ 's soul, find rest in God; _________'s hope comes from Him. Psalm 62: 1-2;5

So let's leave

the could haves

the would haves

and

the should haves

in the

PAST,

but not in your

PAST

because you

PUT YOU IN HIS STORY

and

Cast all ________'s anxiety on Him because He cares for ____________.I Peter 5:7

Because you

Trust in the Lord with all ___________'s heart and lean not on

___________'s own understanding;

in all ___________'s ways submit to Him, and He will make

___________'s paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Because you

‘Love the Lord ____________'s God with all ___________'s heart and with all ___________'s soul and with all __________'s mind.’...

and

‘Love __________'s neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39

And

Finally, ______________,

whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever ____________ has learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with ____________. Philippians 4:8-9

So

let's

live our

ONCE UPON A TIME

moments

filled with peace

because

You and I

PUT ____________ IN HIS STORY

becauses

He is the One who

changes our

ONCE UPON A TIMES~

"That Was Then, This Is Now"...

May the God of hope fill ___________ with all joy and peace as ____________ trusts in Him, so that ________________ may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13
