One Day At A Time

You have all probably heard that song  One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus.  Well this week I got to really thinking about One Day at a time.  I am one of those people who worry (yes I know that is a sin and am working on it).  I would do my quite time with the Lord and be happy that I accomplished that, but then I would start worrying about tomorrow.  What if I fall and forget to do it or worse get to busy to do it?  This worry has plagued me for some time.  But then like everything else in my life the Lord pulled on my heart and showed me the verse, yet again Matthew 6:34 "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the marrow shall take thought for the things of itself, Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"  It was in that verse that the Lord showed me again that tomorrow has enough in it to worry about itself.  This time the Lord also showed me that to enjoy today and the good, godly things that are in today for tomorrow you might have some evil come your way.  We are only promised this moment, not tomorrow.  Praise the Lord that today you obeyed, today you found peace, today you had joy.  The Lord wants us to live each day as the gift that He has meant for it to be.
