Live Like There’s No Yesterday
Author John F. Westfall
Discover the Freedom of Leaving the Past Behind
What if yesterday never happened? What if you were free from your old hurts, trauma, sadness, and mistakes? What if you could be healthier, happier, and freer to be yourself? What if your life could be transformed just by changing your mind?
Drawing on the call in Romans 12 to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind,” pastor and speaker John F. Westfall shows how you can overcome yesterday in order to live with hope and gratitude today. A self-described “world champion negative thinker,” Westfall knows how hard it can be to let go of the past. With great compassion and practical advice, he motivates you to allow the Holy Spirit to change the way you think, releasing you from negative thoughts and destructive patterns.
Ready to leave worry, anxiety, and regret behind? Then you’re ready to live like there’s no yesterday.

The title says Live Like There’s No Yesterday: Discover the Freedom of Leaving the Past Behind. I think most of us know that we shouldn’t live in the past. The author writes about how we shouldn’t dwell on the past….the failures, the not living up to your plans.
God promises us freedom. There is the freedom from anything that takes us away from God and freedom for living an abundant life (that the Bible talks about). This was just one of the things that the author talked about that was explained in such a way as to make it hard to forget. This is the freedom talked about in the book’s title.
The author examines the differences in positive and negative emotions. There are many pros and cons, but the main thing is to know what our tendencies are and with God’s help we can live better than our natural self. Many Christian living truths were found throughout the book. I found reading this to be like hearing lots of sermons.
You’ll want to read the last two encouraging chapters. As the author wraps up the book, he uses Romans 12 to show how to leave the past behind by planning your past. If that sounds interesting and a little different to you, it is. But the theme of Romans 12:2 gives the key to the freedom described in this book.
