Don’t Worry about Tomorrow, Focus on Today!


 Don't Worry about Tomorrow Copyright 2016 Joan Y. Edwards

Don’t Worry about Tomorrow Copyright 2016 Joan Y. Edwards

Don’t Worry about Tomorrow, Focus on Today!

You can learn a lot from stories in the Bible. In Exodus, the people were afraid they wouldn’t have food for tomorrow. Moses told them that God would provide for them. The manna they lasted only last a day. It spoiled, if they didn’t eat it that day. God sent more manna for the next day for his people.

What I’m telling you is that God’s graces are sufficient for today. But you say, “What about tomorrow. I’m not sure how to handle what comes tomorrow. I’m afraid of what might happen tomorrow.”

God says to you, “Don’t worry about tomorrow. When tomorrow comes, I will give you the graces you need to survive.”

This means he will give you the knowledge, skills, wisdom, food, water, protection that you need. I don’t think God means not to prepare. Once you’ve done the planning, activate faith in you and in God, that it’s going to work out fine.

Thank you for reading my blog. I love to hear your thoughts. Click on comment and scroll down to the bottom of the page, and tell me what you think about worry.

  1. Hi Joan,
    Your post was perfect timing for me. Thank you for the reminder not to worry about tomorrow. My devotional, the other day, was about how God provided with manna from heaven. I have a short memory.
    Blessings,
    Tracy

    • Dear Tracy,
      Thank you for writing. I’m glad my post was a perfect timing for you. Sometimes we have to hear things a second time. It’s interesting that both of us wrote about Manna. Smiley face. It’s amazing that sometimes we read books and see one thing in them. Then when we read them a second or third time, different words and ideas pop into our minds.

      Enjoy your day.
      Believe in you
      Never Give Up

  2. Eckhart Tolle, the spiritual leader who wrote The Power of Now, says that 95% of what we worry about never happens anyway. It’s wasted energy. Stay in the now. I’m still working on that, so thank you for the reminder… 🙂

    • Dear Shawn,
      Thanks for sharing Eckhart Tolle’s words. Very true. Yet sometimes we worry. Being human, we keep trying to be better and we are. You’re right. We keep working to focus on the now. Especially, me.

      Never Give Up

  3. Matthew 6:25-34English Standard Version (ESV)

    Do Not Be Anxious
    25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?[a] 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
    I couldn’t resist copying and pasting this in here! Great reminder!

  4. Dear Carol,
    Thanks for posting Matthew 6:25-34. It is indeed helpful in keeping calm.

    We need many words sometimes before the calm settles in.

    Celebrate you and your knowledge of God’s words and how you share them with others.

    Believe in you
    Never Give Up
