Tomorrow I will begin writing that book.
Tomorrow I will start my diet.
Tomorrow I will clean out my closet.
Tomorrow I will slow down to smell the flowers.
Tomorrow I will spend more time with my family.
Tomorrow I will be more patient.
The problem is that tomorrow never seems to come. Tomorrow quickly becomes today. And somehow, tomorrow becomes today with dreams undone.
Can you relate? Do you wish your tomorrow would be different from your today?
Recently, I read an article by Adrian Rogers stating, “A research study by psychologist William Morriston reported 94% of the 3,000 persons he surveyed were enduring today to get to tomorrow.”
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the hamster wheel. Let us choose to live in the here and now with strength and grace. Let us live today well. Start a plan to move into your best life. Plan your work and work your plan. As you do, tomorrow will be different.
Who is the friend you want to bless? Please, do it today! Who is the neighbor you need to encourage? Do it! What goal do you want to complete? Go for it! You and I are not promised tomorrow, but we do have today. Live today with your best disciplines and choices. Psalm 90:12 (NIV) reads, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
To quote my friend, Marilyn Osborn,“You are still in the middle of your story.” So, go chase those dreams! Tell your person how much you love him. Live in the moment. Make every second count. Then you can laugh at the days to come. You will know you have accomplished your goals. You will have peace because you stepped into your calling. You will have lived and loved well, with little regrets.
Change your tomorrow, by living well your today.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25 (NIV)
Ephesians 4:1-6 NIV "I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. "
