One of the things on my mind lately has been to fully enjoy today. It can be too easy to look ahead to tomorrow, next week or next month and get lost in the future. Worry can sneak in and steal your joy from today.
Our hope is not dependant on what happens tomorrow. Our hope comes from the Lord.
There are moments where it has felt like everything is at stake. There are moments of pain or difficulty that leave us wondering how we will support each other let alone ourselves.
Some of you have had your world turned upside down recently. Some of you have lost loved ones. Many of you are trying to figure out finances. It can be so easy to move forward into the future trying to make a plan on how to solve our losses.
But Jesus shows us a different way. He says, “Do not worry about tomorrow” (Matt 6:34). He reassures us that He will take care of us. He even offers an invitation for those of us who are weary to come to Him (Matt 11:28-30).
Enjoy today. Laugh. See the good and dwell on those things. Be present.
