Today

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
∼Matthew 6:33-34

Today

Today is my journey.

Today is not a race or a destination.

Today is a journey to be experienced and enjoyed.

Today is a teacher
imparting wisdom for tomorrow’s part of the journey.

Today is a disciplinarian
training me for the next leg of the journey.

Today is a cheerleader
encouraging me on through the rough sections.

Today is a photojournalist
recording the journey to help me remember
where I’ve been,
what I’ve done,
and what I’ve learned.

Today is an opportunity.

Tomorrow is full of possibilities.
Tomorrow is the hope that pushes me through today.

 

I found this little gem in my journal recently and thought it was appropriate in light of all the uncertainty in the world right now.

What journey are you on today?
Who is with you?
Who is waiting to be invited along?
What is there to enjoy today?
What is tomorrow’s possibility?
Have you been learning anything today?
Are there any special memories to be stored up?
Have you taken advantage of any opportunities today?
What hope for tomorrow is pushing you through today? Why?
