Thankful for Today

If I am anxious for tomorrow, then I can’t be thankful for today.

 

 

Consider the lilies…

how they grow…

they neither toil nor spin…

 yet I tell you…

even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these…

 

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”  Matthew 6:33,34

  1. Wow, what a great thought! I am going to put this on my door in order to never fall into the trap of forgetfulness. The statement “If I am anxious for tomorrow, then I can’t be thankful for today” freed me from all my doubts. Thank you for the awakening- for the sharing of the greatest wisdom. Butterfly in the Plaster was revived by you and is happy to ride the sunbeam again. Thank you.

    • Thank you for the encouraging news, Tomas! Yes, the Lord has been trying to get through my thick skull about the purposelessness of anxiety! And then He showed me how it robs me of awareness and appreciation for His gifts today! I think I better put it on my door too!!

      Thank you again! Linda
