Tomorrow I will write that book.
Tomorrow I will start that diet.
Tomorrow I will clean out that closet.
Tomorrow I will have a better attitude.
Tomorrow I will be organized.
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 repeated unfullfilled promises to self.
Can you relate? Do you hope your tomorrow will be different from your today?
Recently, I read an article by Adrian Rogers, which reads, “A research study by psychologist William Morriston reported 94% of the 3,000 persons he surveyed were enduring today in order 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. We can start a plan to move into our best life. As we do, tomorrow will be different.
Who is the friend you want to reach out to? 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 well. Psalm 90:12 (NIV) reads, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
To quote my friend, Marilyn Osbond, “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 that you have accomplished the goals. You will have peace because you stepped into your calling. You will have lived and loved well, with no 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)
“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, 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. Ephesians 4:1-6 NIV As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord,one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
