Life Happens

Today’s trouble is enough for today.  Matthew 6:25-34  Part of life is that we are encouraged to plan, yet with planning comes expectation. Expectation is a strong belief that something will happen or occur in the future. However, we can’t really know with absolute certainty that what we plan to happen will actually occur. In between the planning and the future end result, life happens one moment at a time. We make decisions based on what we expect to happen and planning is always a good thing. Yet let us first take action based on what is right and necessary for today, as we allow God’s Word to purpose our steps.

Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.  Psalm 119:133

Gift Of Today

Today’s trouble is enough for today.  Matthew 6:25-34  Tomorrow will certainly come, whether in the flesh or in the spirit one does not know. So – look around. Maybe what we “see” does not impress us and yet we see it. Is the gift of “sight” not enough? Or – perhaps we would rather be “blind.” We know God and yet take so much for granted. He has given us  more to offer than we know, and forget we really only have today to offer it. So for today, let us do what we can and do what we must, but first seek God’s wisdom, open our heart and open our mind in order that we be ready to receive what the gift of today has to offer us.
