Live Life in the Present

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. – Matthew 6:34(ESV)
I did a sermon centered on this verse a few weeks ago. I was reminded of it again today when visiting with a friend who is facing some serious unexpected health challenges. You and I aren’t promised tomorrow. So often we get caught up fretting about the past or worrying about the future and we miss out on experiencing God’s goodness in the present. Each day brings with it cares of its own. Anticipating only doubles our troubles.
Life is best lived to the fullest one day at time. Yesterday is gone. It’s done. You can’t redo it, so don’t re-live it. Tomorrow promises to bring enough trouble of its own. Cherish today. It’s the best day you have.
…and “no”, I’m not always good at doing this myself. But I hope it encourages you nonetheless.
