We simply can’t answer that question. We here on Earth have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Therefore, we must live each day to the absolute fullest, having no regrets. It sounds so easy, but in the busyness of life we can find ourselves putting things off until tomorrow.
While putting things off sometimes works it doesn’t make it right. We still need to follow the steps that God has laid out for today. I got a message yesterday from one of my dearest friends, her Mom had a massive stroke 746 miles away from her. Can you imagine answering that call, whether it be 1 mile or hundreds. I would ask that you say a prayer for her whole family, as they face the days ahead, that God would comfort them with peace and discernment that they can’t comprehend. God knows what each day holds for us all, we do not and never will. Therefore, we must make the phone call we feel prompted to make, keep holding the door, showing love and compassion to those we know as well as those we don’t.
I feel certain that we all want to be known for the love and joy we bring to the world, not the rush of to do lists and the slamming of doors in the face of others. We are called to live our lives given, ALWAYS seeking ways to make it better for everyone around us. That is what brings pure joy to others and to our own hearts. When love is given…
Forgive today if you need to, make a visit if you feel led. Only focus on today, and let tomorrow wait for what it has in store. Live today to the fullest, and every day after today.
So how do we do it?
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:33-34
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,… Colossians 3:23
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
