God Will Provide

We can depend on God to fulfill His promise, even when all the roads leading to it are closed.
Matthew Henry

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones. And when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
Victor Hugo

None of us can see the future, but we can know for sure that whenever we get there, God will have been there ahead of us. And as long as He’s there, what do we have to fear?
Pat Williams

I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.
Psalm 37:25

Forget the Past

Never let yesterday take up too much time of today.
Sign in Tex Schramm’s Office

Let the past go, but hang on to the things it taught you.
Pat Williams

The past is history. Make the present good, and the past will take care of itself.
Knute Rockne

Never look back unless you want to go that way.

Having loosened our grip on the past, we are free to reach for the future.

A Life Worthwhile

If anyone were to ask me what I want out of life I would say – the opportunity for doing something useful, for in no other way, I am convinced, can true happiness be attained.
Eleanor Roosevelt

The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have. You won’t have time to think about yourself and get bogged down in your emotional difficulties.
Norman Vincent Peale

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
Greek Proverb

What I try to do each and every day of my life is to make a difference in one person’s life. If we can do that on an individual basis, think what a different world this would be.
Earl Woods

This award means more than anything I have ever received or ever will receive as a baseball player. Because to win this award, it will not matter how many wins or strikeouts I have. I will have made a difference in people’s lives.

Worry

Anxiety is often a red light on the mind’s dashboard that tells us we are not expressing our needs to God and trusting Him to provide.
Richard Lovelace

When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future. When I am depressed it is because I am living in the past.
Jimmy R.

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.
Dale Carnegie

If you trust in God and yourself, you can surmount every obstacle. Do not yield to restless anxiety. One must not always be asking what may happen to one in life, but one must advance, fearlessly and bravely.
Prince Otto Von Bismark

The Future

Do not let the future be held hostage by the past.
Neal Maxwell

The future has several names. For the weak it is the impossible. For the fainthearted it is the unknown. For the thoughtful and valiant it is the ideal.
Victor Hugo

I have let go of a success to build an expanding future.
Conrad Hilton

Instead of always looking at the past, I put myself ahead twenty years and try to look at what I need to do now in order to get there then.
Diana Ross

Today is the Day

Young people live in the future. Old people live in the past. Wise people live in the present.
John Maxwell

Men spend their lives in anticipation, in determining to be vastly happy at some period or other, when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other: it is ours.
Charles Caleb Colton

By continuously engaging a cycle of longing, you never actually allow yourself to be in the present. You end up living your life at some point just off in the future. You only have one moment – the one right here, right now. If you skip over “here” in your rush to get “there,” you deny yourself the full range of feelings and sensations that can only be experienced in the present moment.
Cherie Carter-Scott

The past is history, the future is a mystery, and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called the present.
Deepak Chopra

Prepare yourself for greater success by putting yourself totally into what you are doing now, even if it isn’t your “ultimate.” Fully engaging yourself in the present not only helps you to enjoy what you are doing but also prepares you mentally to handle the greater challenges and responsibilities that will come with the attainment of your goals.
Laurence Boldt

Letting Go of the Past

You can’t live in the past. If you try, it prevents you from doing anything constructive today to build a better tomorrow for yourself and your family.
Pat Williams

Regardless of your past, your future is a clean slate.
Anonymous

You can’t change what happened yesterday no matter how hard you try, so don’t spend time worrying about it.
Pat Williams

Should-haves solve nothing. It’s the next thing to happen that needs thinking about.
Alexandra Ripley

Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as fast as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear with hopes and invitations to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
