Hope for the Heart Part 28 - One Step at a Time

Julie’s stomach churned with anxiety. She was worrying about tomorrow. It’s something we all do. It is important to plan for tomorrow. It’s important to plan how to nourish relationships, how to spend our time and our money wisely and to set goals. Yet we often simply let worry about tomorrow overtake our minds. Soon we feel it in our bodies too. Worrying about tomorrow will rob you of today!

God understands that. He also understands each one of us. That’s why in His Word, the Bible, He gave many examples and encouragement to take one day at a time.

Stop for a moment right now and identify the thief of worry in your life. Take what you are worrying about and put it into a prayer to God. Hand that worry about tomorrow into His hands. He already sees tomorrow and will give you the strength to handle tomorrow when it comes.

Walk in today. God’s help and strength is a daily supply. He gives it until tomorrow, not for tomorrow.

Listen to all the encouragement from God to live in today…

“Give us this day our daily bread…” (Matthew 6:11)

“I cry to you daily…” (Psalm 86:3)

“...they searched the Scriptures daily.” (Acts 17:11)

“Encourage one another daily…” (Hebrews 3:13)

“... daily follow me.” (Luke 9:23)

Live in today… draw strength for today… and know that because Jesus lives… you can face tomorrow when it arrives.

prayer & reflection

Father God,
Thank You that You provide all I need to walk in this day. I put my hand in Yours and ask for Your strength and guidance for each step today. Thank You that You already see tomorrow and You will be there to help me face whatever it brings when it comes. Help my anxious heart to release tomorrow to Your loving care.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
