Five Minute Friday: tomorrow

tomorrow
I’ve spent my life equal parts dreading tomorrow and living for tomorrow. Both are unhealthy.

The fear which would defer all change, which shrinks from what will come, does not belong to the one whose Savior has assured her of the victory.

So too is it unhealthy to ignore today in the hope that tomorrow will be better. The future is no panacea for all hurts, and I am not assured the things I have at times confidently expected: life events coming in appropriate, timely order to land me where I want to be.

No. Earthly tomorrows may be quite unlike what we expect, whether we expect good or ill. But there are things of which we are sure.

1. There will be an end of earthly tomorrows.

2. There is something beyond earthly tomorrows.

3. If we are in Christ, He who has called us is faithful, and He will keep us through all our todays and all our tomorrows — and beyond them.

  1. You are right. There will be an end to earthly tomorrows and there will be a tomorrow that never ends. Perfect food for thought for me today. Thank-you.
