Tomorrow Will Get Its Day

Worry or PrayerWorry or Prayer (Photo credit: Leonard John Matthews)

Give your worries to the Lord, 
       and he will take care of you. 
       He will never let good people down. 

Psalm 55:22

New Century Version (NCV)

      Sometimes putting trust in the Lord seems easier said than done.  It would be nice to just go through life like most of us did as children when we had everything taken care of and didn't have to worry about much of anything.  Maybe we had some chores around the house and we were usually expected to do well at school, but we didn't have to think about bills and the bigger headaches of being an adult.  Our parents were there to take care of all of that.

       Later when we had the responsibilities adulthood we were the ones having to think about the bills and the future.  Sometimes it can become stressful as we become absorbed with worry and fear.   Yet what good does it do to let ourselves fall into this unhealthy trap?  It's wise to plan for the future and take care of daily affairs.   But if we worry about things over which we have little or no control, we are not solving any problems and may actually be contributing to new problems.

         Enjoy life.  Do what you can as best you can.   But don't let the unseen things of tomorrow ruin today.

So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. 
Matthew 6:34
New Living Translation (NLT)

  1. Yesterday was actually one of those days when I just had to lay my problems, worries and fears at the feet of the good Man above. : / Def thanks for the Matt 6:34 reminder. This also reminds me of the lyrics to Twila Paris song The Warrior is a Child...
    They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
    They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
    I drop my sword and cry for just a while
    'Cause deep inside this armor
    The warrior is a child

  2. Great message. New follower here. I’m getting a head start on visiting my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.


  3. Just came across this post whilst reading various blogs. Yes, my old friend called 'worry'. I would love to kick him to the kerb but he always comes back. Nice post and said in a timely manner (for me). Good read. Thanks.
