James 4:14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.
How many of us plan so far ahead only to have the day in front of us whisk by without a thought? How many of us wish the weekend would hurry up arrive and look at today as just an obstacle in our way to get there? There’s nothing wrong with planning for a future in this world or looking forward to a celebration or a life event to come. Goals we set in our lives help keep us focused on tomorrow just in case it exists! What happens to today though? What if tomorrow doesn’t exist? Who controls tomorrow? Our plans are just that.. “Our” plans. They are not God’s plan for us.
What we can simply do is Love today, pray today, be more Christlike today.
I may not be here to write this tomorrow. You may not be here to read it… Like the fog, we may be on this Earth for only one more morning before we are lifted up to the heavens.
