Take No Thought For Tomorrow

clarity

By Wes Mason

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” ~ Matt 6:34 KJV

How often have I wasted my life worrying about tomorrow or being focused on something I don’t have today or something I hope to have or do later. I need to learn to focus on TODAY and what is right in front of me. All I have is NOW to serve the Lord. Yesterday is gone forever only to be seen again at the judgment and tomorrow is not promised to any of us.

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit’; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.’ But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.” ~ James 4:13-16 NKJV

When I awake each day, do I set my heart to serve our Lord and his Kingdom? Do I look to our heavenly father and pray to him to let my life bring him glory and honor and help lead others to Jesus? Do I lift up the needs of others to him? Do I thank and praise him and Have I learned to say to God, not my will but your will be done in all my life?

This is something we need to grow and mature into each day on our journey with Jesus. May he help us to be faithful by his mercy and grace.

FIND US FAITHFUL

Steve Green

We’re pilgrims on the journey of the narrow road
And those who’ve gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God’s sustaining grace

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who’ve gone before us, let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave, lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we’ve left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave, lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave, lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

In Jesus Name. Amen.
