I decided to get up every morning and read Matthew 6:33-34. This year, I am making a conscious effort to seek the kingdom of God First, and reading that scripture sets my focus for the day.
We are 17 days in to the year and I have had some successes and a few failures. For instance, I rocked it yesterday. Cleaned almost every room in the house, and had a delicious dinner on the table by the time my husband made it home from work. Today…not so much. I made it home ten minutes before the husband. The house was a disaster, thanks in part, to an unexpected non-snow snow day, and I remixed some left-overs for dinner. Based on tomorrow’s calendar I do not have high hopes.
That’s not exactly true. I do have high hopes. It’s hard not to be hopeful the night before. I mean, I get another chance to get it right. The night before is all about anticipation. I have no idea what tomorrow will hold. But I like to think i’m at least a little prepared. Plus i’m pretty sure that I still have stuff to do tonight in order to make sure I can count today as a productive day. I still have some trouble to make, and some to answer for in this current 24-hour cycle.
Sure. I have a checklist (in my head) of things I want to get accomplished tomorrow, but it’s not something I am worried about. I will worry tomorrow after I write every thing down. The Bible clearly states each day has enough trouble of it’s own.
So do what you can today. And worry about tomorrow once it gets here.
