My Divine Note: Stay in today - Matthew 6:34 (GW)

July 21, 2011 
Matthew 6:34 (GW) Jesus said,  “So don't ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

This Scripture rocks my brain. I’m one of those creative strategists who attempts to control life even when I know better because God has curtailed that tendency.  Can’t even begin to tell you how many moments, situations and opportunities have slipped through my hands because I was racing ahead to the next steps, imaginations or plans instead of savoring the moments that make memories.
I quote this Scripture in my ministries all the time, so I’m taking it to heart that it jumped out at me during a time when I’m in somewhat humble obedience. You see, I am learning to be in the moment when I am with my terminally-ill mother. For the first time, I don’t have a schedule of things I must get done or meetings/events to attend – all my extra time is spent with her.
I’ve learned to open the shades and watch the rain with Mom. I freshen up her face and tell her she’s gorgeous and that I’m glad that God knit me her womb. I talk to her about the daily details of my life, so she can have a connection with the land of the living. I’ve learned to spend hours just sitting by her bedside, reading Scripture, looking into her eyes and telling her how much I love her. I appreciate all of her awake moments!
Make the most of today. The next time you start to worry remember that Jesus said to leave tomorrow alone.
