Today is Groundhog Day. Each time I see the designation of this day on my At-A-Glance calendar, my mind takes me back to 1993. In "Groundhog Day," the movie, Bill Murray played the character Phil. Phil is a weatherman who is stuck - stuck in time. The same day, for Phil, repeats over and over and over . . .
In this loop-of-a-day, Phil knows what each minute will bring - namely, just what it brought twenty-four hours before. Phil and those around him are stuck.
Are you stuck?
What are you doing - day after day, over and over and over . . . that you would like to stop? What elements of your life need to experience a shake up? A decent burial? Yes
We cannot re-live days. But we can make changes, create new habits, and make tomorrow much different than today. Jesus tells us to spend zero amount of time on worrying.

As you think about tomorrow, what needs to go? Here are a few verses that may help you with overcoming those need-to-go items in your life.
Anything catch your eyes (grab your heart) as you read? Start with that one.
Make tomorrow better than today. Have a good day after Groundhog Day.
