And we are off and running. The New Year is officially underway. Some businesses were closed yesterday because New Year’s Day was on Sunday. School was still out. Many Christmas decorations are still up. (Of course, this is Tennessee. That could be true in July.) But today, the world is back in full force, holiday over, new year started.
What does it hold? What are my expectations? How long will I go until I fail in my first resolution or miss my first goal deadline? The good news is, that doesn’t matter. What matters is today. Am I on track today? Am I faithful to God today? Jesus said, “Don’t worry about tomorrow. Focus on today.”
Father God, You have given me today. Help me to give it back. Help me to do what is pleasing to You today and worry about tomorrow tomorrow. I remember that “THIS is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and Meberg glad in it.”
Amen, and Thanks.
