We Only Have Today
Before last year, I used to spend a lot of time thinking about and planning for the future. I like having a plan, or at the very least, having some idea about what's coming next.
Hope restores the life fear tries to steal. Yesterday already happened and tomorrow isn't here yet. We only have today.
That is in essence what Jesus was trying to teach his followers. "We only have today." Today is a gift that you will miss out on if you keep worrying about tomorrow or living in regret over the things you didn't do yesterday.
Live in the moment today. Let your need to control your outcomes go, and simply rest in the glorious freedom of surrender. Tomorrow will get here soon enough. You only have today, and it is an amazing gift full of surprises, and moments of glory.
May you experience today in joy, and may the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you now and always. Amen.
