Let Tomorrow Wait

The key to peace and happiness is in how we deal with troubles and trials. If we truly trust God, we will face life and its challenges fearlessly, knowing He’s with us and will get us through every situation. But sometimes we miss a lot of the good stuff because we’re too focused on the bad stuff.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

Dancing In The Now!

Yesterday, I was listening to Christmas music and making apple butter to take to my family in Odessa. As I was doing the cleanup, an upbeat song came on and I started dancing around the kitchen. I was, to put it mildly, loving life.

By the looks of the house and yard, the little girl’s life was probably not joyful all day, but that only served to illustrate that she was, at that moment, filled with joy and happiness.

We spend far too much time worrying about where we’re going, and too little time enjoying where we are. Let’s live in the now, be happy, and dance!

“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3

Dodging Torpedoes!

I’m a live for today kind of guy, and that hasn’t always been a good thing. In my younger days—most of my life actually—I lived life like there was no tomorrow; full speed ahead, dodging torpedoes. Since I’ve realized how much God loves me—even when I don’t deserve it—I live for today, but in a different way.

Our world revolves around the sun, and the seasons come and go. The rain will come, but the sun will also shine. Winter gives way to spring, and the brutal summer relents to cool crisp fall. Each is good in its own way, and bad in another, but when all is said and done, all things are necessary, and it’s all good!

For, behold, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. Song of Solomon 2:11
