In childhood we often say “I can’t wait to be a grown up and do what I want” in our teenage years we say “I’m going to move out as soon as I can and go to so and so college” when we are in college we plan for our careers years in advance.
We constantly live in the future. Giving no thought to what is happening in the NOW. What is happening TODAY…this very minute.
We are a society who has placed so much emphasis on success based upon money and what our careers will
Be we often forget the good things going on in our lives now, and what God wants us to focus on NOW.
Matthew 6:34 tells us very clearly to not worry about the future “therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
James 4:13 is another scripture which talks about worrying about our futures. Please read this one.
I am so guilty of worrying about what I will be doing in the future. What job I will have, how many kids I’ll have, what my house will look like etc. this blog is not only for you but definitely for me!
I am praying this: dear Lord, help me
To focus on your plan for my life TODAY. What do you want me
To do NOW. Help me to trust in you fully. Not my will, but yours father.
We aren’t on this planet for long. God compares our lives to mist…it is here for an instant. Why worry about something far ahead when we are only here such a short time? Kind of puts it into perspective for me!
Let’s focus on NOW people. Who can I reach for Jesus TODAY?
