31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy -Day 28 – Living for Today, Not Tomorrow


How many times have I read that verse and just rushed over it?  As I am reading through Proverbs and soaking one verse from each chapter, I am finding they have a much stronger impact.

It says do NOT boast about my tomorrows.  Wow have I done that – you bet I have – vacations, retreats, get-togethers way before they happened.  I find myself asking my Bible study friends, “What are you doing this weekend.”  A much more appropriate question would be after the weekend and ask them what they did over the weekend.

You and I are NOT guaranteed tomorrow.  As we plan our calendars and to-do lists we know God is already there tomorrow.  He knows what our tomorrow is going to look like. He knows those emergencies that are about to come up and when we are going to have to drop everything and minister.  He knows when He is going to place someone on our mind that needs an encouraging word.  He knows when the phone is going to ring, and how we will respond.

We see posters that say make it count, live for today, live life to it’s fullest, and we say things like “tomorrow I am going to work out, tomorrow I will start that diet, tomorrow I will eat healthier, tomorrow I am going to call that friend or relative I have not talked to in a very long time, tomorrow I’ll message her.”   TOMORROW, TOMORROW, TOMORROW!  What about TODAY?  What if tomorrow never comes?


“Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow has yet to come.  We have only today.  Let us begin.”  Mother Teresa

Father may I wake up each day knowing I only have today.  AMEN!
