Ecclesiastes 7:10 ERV "Don’t say, “Life was better in the ‘good old days.’ What happened?” Wisdom does not lead us to ask that question."
THE GOOD OLD DAYS
My mother told stories of when she worked in her youth. How fantastic things were back then; salaries were okay, money was more valuable and life was generally good. Thank God for yesterday!
Your "good old days" maybe when your father was alive, or when your husband was alive, or when you still had a job, when you had people in key positions who probably gave you contracts and promotions, or when you were in a particular location. It really doesn't matter what it was, and I'm not about to sympathize with you; what matters is that you are here now, what you are believing for now and what your expectations about tomorrow are!
Jesus Christ is the same today as He was yesterday; and He will be the same tomorrow! There's a song in my spirit, "Ese ibi teti bere, ese ibi tebade, adupe o Jesu, ibi ten mu wa lo" It's a Yoruba song thanking God for the work He started and for where He's taking us to. That should be your attitude. Today may not be as you desire, instead of looking back, look ahead! Have faith in God! Things can turn around in 24 hours! And they will in Jesus' name! Amen. Remember this, God's best is always in your tomorrow!
