Tomorrow {#FMFPARTY}

Matthew 6:34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

None of us are promised tomorrow, and yet many times we spend today looking back at yesterday or worrying about tomorrow.  In doing so we miss out on today.carpe-12091_1280

Recently my youngest daughter turned eighteen.  I realized how many today’s I wasted thinking that I would spend time doing that with my children tomorrow.  Now today is yesterday and my children are adults.  I know that the grace of God has covered my yesterdays, and that tomorrow is not promised, so I hope to start living in today.  I want to be fully present in the things that are occupying my time today.  I want to make sure that I don’t put off til tomorrow what I have the opportunity today.  Carpe Diem.  Seize the Day.  That is what it means to not worry about tomorrow, keeping our focus on what is in front of us.

Yes, we need to plan for our future, but worrying is not planning.  God’s grace is not in tomorrow.  It is in today.  God’s mercy is new every morning, but His mercy is for today.

    Worrying is not planning. I need to remember this. I get sucked into worrying too frequently. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
