Living in a fast paced world, we are constantly looking and striving to complete the next chore on our to-do list, thus sometimes leaving our minds filled with worry and grief about what tomorrow may bring because of what may have been left undone. As I write this currently, I have so many ‘to-dos’ that must be completed by the end of the week. I found myself getting to a place of worry and uncertainty, however I am reminded that worrying only defers my capability to think, act, and live in the present. Moreover with God all things are possible, and through HIM all things that we set to do, can and will be accomplished. When you find yourself worrying about the future or the troubles of the next day- ask God for his guidance, to release your troubled mind, and for your faith to to be heightened through the process of trusting that all WILL work out. What’s awesome about having access to God’s word- is that there is POWER in it when you believe, trust and act on it. ASK, SEEK, KNOCK and what you ask for will be given.
There should be a definite balance between being nonchalant and conscience about our life responsibilities. I am not suggesting we be carefree about dreams, duties, and deadlines-for faith is dead without actively working towards what we think and seek. There is a clear distinguishable result between a mind that is full of worries, and anxieties versus a mind that is aware, conscience and MINDFUL. I love the illustration below, as it portrays how we can miss out on the awesomeness of living in the present by having a mind full of clutter from yesterday’s mistakes and worrying about tomorrow’s occurrences.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- Jeremiah 29;11
God does not want his people to have troubled and burdened minds about tomorrow- he wants us to have a peace of mind about today and trust that his strength living through us will sustain us for tomorrow’s encounters. Below is a video of a song that I think and meditate on often. Kelly Price singing -“I know who holds Tomorrow” this song is a constant reminder that I dont have to worry about tomorrow because I have an assurance of who holds my future, and who holds my hand through whatever I may face. I hope this song helps you release your worries about tomorrow, and puts faith, reassurance, and confidence within your spirit to face tomorrow boldly!
Take it One Day at a Time!
