The Lifebuilder's Creed

Today is the most important day of my life.

Yesterday with it’s successes and victories, struggles and failures

is gone forever.

The past is past.

Done.

Finished.

I cannot relive it. I cannot go back and change it.

But I will learn from it and improve my Today.

Today. This moment. NOW.

It is God’s gift to me and it is all that I have.

Tomorrow with all its joys and sorrows, triumphs and troubles isn’t here yet.

Indeed, tomorrow may never come.

Therefore, I will not worry about tomorrow.

Today is what God has entrusted to me.

It is all that I have. I will do my best in it

I will demonstrate the best of me in it–

my character, giftedness, and abilities–

to my family and friends, clients and associates.

I will identify those things that are most important to do Today,

and those things I will do until they are done.

And when this day is done

I will look back with satisfaction at that which I have accomplished.

Then, and only then, will I plan my tomorrow,

Looking to improve upon Today, with God’s help.

Then I shall go to sleep in peace . . . content.

– Dale Witherington
