“So Do Not Worry”
Tomorrow may or may not come for you and tomorrow may or may not come for me; to worry about tomorrow, then, is a waste of good effort and energy that could better be used to deal with what the day that has actually arrived, namely, today, is bringing to us.
In fact, the next hour, the next minute, and the next second may or may not come for you or for me; to worry about even the next moment is a waste of good effort and energy that could better be used to deal with the only reality that we have, namely, the second in which we are alive right now.
Help us, God, not to miss the deep joy or to evade the deep sorrow of this, the only moment in which we are alive, by looking anxiously toward times and events that may or may not arrive.
Give us grace and strength to trust all our moments to you.
“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” (Matthew 6:34)
