I have shared before how I often wake up with a particular song on my mind. This morning it was a 1969 classic that I added to my iPod a few weeks ago — “More Today Than Yesterday” by The Spiral Starecase. (Go ahead and listen to the song while you read on!)
So as I was attempting to wake up Betsy, I sang part of the chorus to her. “I love you more today than yesterday. But not as much as tomorrow.” Which got me thinking: How do I do this?
“I’ll be spending time with you” — the greater the quantity of time I spend with her the more likely I’ll have quality time with her.
“Everyday’s a new day in love with you” — love keeps no record of wrongs. If I’m holding grudges against her or beating myself up over mistakes I made, I’m keeping a record. Forgiveness is the key to wiping the slate clean so I can love her more today than yesterday.
“With each day comes a new way of loving you” — there’s a reason why the Apostle Paul talks about “growing up” in the great love chapter of 1 Corinthians 13. My love should be maturing and growing up everyday. So today I should be able to love Betsy in a more mature way.
“I thank the Lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger” — as my relationship with Jesus becomes more intimate I will learn how to love Betsy more today than yesterday.
What special relationships do you have? Do you love that special someone more today than yesterday? With some time, forgiveness, maturity, and a closer relationship with Jesus, you can truly love that special someone more today than yesterday. Give it a try!
Every day’s a new day, every time I love you. Every way’s a new way, every time I love you!
