Today is What’s Important

by Sis. Kim McDougal

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”
Psalms 32:8 (NIV)

Sometimes we focus so much on tomorrow that we miss what God has for us today. And tomorrow doesn’t just mean tomorrow but it can be a month or a year from now. We make all these plans and goals and set them out in advance yet we miss out on what God wants to show us today. Our minds are so focused on the future that we overlook the blessings of today. And God makes it very clear in the bible when He says, “do not worry about tomorrow what you shall eat or put on…”

You could be in the park today and looking in one direction while God might have wanted you to see a particular bird in a tree that you never have seen before, but you missed it not really paying attention to it. God wants to reveal His mysteries to us and we’re not promised tomorrow. There’s certainly nothing wrong with making plans, but let’s not focus all our attention on the tomorrows, let’s let God show us what He has for us today.
