Every Tomorrow Has Two Handles

Every Tomorrow Has Two Handles. Sandra Hersey. Keys to victorious faith Christian blog

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher

I love this saying because we can create our future; we can have a future filled with anxiety or we can have faith to stand and believe our future is what we want it to be. Hebrews 11:1 so wonderfully proclaims to us, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (As a little freebie thrown in today notice that it says “now faith” – that means faith for right now! What do you need faith for right now?)
I want to help you write your future by looking into your future.

I want you to look closely at your goals you have set for this year. {If you have not set your goals for this year then stop now and do it!} I believe this year is going to be GREAT! I want you to BLAST into it, not have it take you by surprise, start now with what you want to happen this year! I want to help you live what’s most important every day you have left!

Your Goals
Look at your list carefully. Does your list of goals reflect opportunities for you to live your dreams? Think of it this way – on that sheet of paper is a small picture of your future.

Your future is a canvas that has yet to be drawn. Next year at this time, you will look at this list and as you cross off things you have accomplished it will be the history of your life… what happened… where you went… big and little accomplishments… failures… heartbreaks… disappointments… and even big successes.
The future will happen and day-by-day and sadly it will silently move into your past.

4 Key Questions: 
Here are questions which are important in helping you create the future you want.

Have you written a list of the most important goals you want to experience in your life this year?

Have you written a personal mission statement for your life this year? A statement which promises how you will live what you value.

Have you written down your goals in clear detail with a date to each one?

Do you have at least one clearly defined goal for every major interest and role in your life? Example financial, health, relationships, etc

We are only a few weeks into the New Year. You may have not yet written down your goals and vision for this year or you may have done this but “fallen off the wagon” so to speak. No matter where you are on this day, start like it is January 1st all over again. It is not too late and if you have stumbled then get up and get going again. You can do this; your future can be what you create it to be.

I encourage you to start today, why not right now. You can never get these moments back so go forward.
