“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.”
Corrie Ten Boom
As each day passes, I have come to realize that every one of them is a blessing from above. Not because tomorrow will be any better or worse than today, but because it’s another time of God’s grace for me to share His wonderful message. Our purpose in life is to serve God and others and each new day will make that possible.
God tells us not to worry about tomorrow – that tomorrow will take care of itself. If we adopt that truth, we’re opening doors to more and more of those occasions. God has already determined what will happen today and tomorrow and the rest of our lives. He’s drawn the blueprint for every person that ever walks the earth. He knows us so intimately that He is aware of our thoughts, our words and what we do. That shouldn’t frighten us, but give us a solid hope that He is our greatest supporter. He walks with us all the way through eternity.
Yet, even as easy as it seems, we continue to worry. It’s in our human nature to do so. We have been blessed with minds that try to reason things out, to make decisions, to solve problems. The world tells us that we should use those talents to build our portfolios, our work record, our successes in life. God wants us to use our gifts as well, but with hearts that are not self serving.
Each day is a gift – especially when we grow old – but also throughout our lives. From the first breath we take until the last, we have a future planned by God. Today why not join me in taking each day as a wonderful gift from Him. Thank Him for your life. Praise Him for His intervention in it. Trust that He has made it possible for you to live in paradise with Him. Have faith that He never breaks His promises and His plans for your future are always for your good.
