Lord, Today

You do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14, NIV)

My life is a breath.
I appear, then disappear.
I can’t speak with confidence about the next moment,
much less about the future.

When I think about the future,
it usually turns to useless speculation and worry.
I get anxious about my own selfish concerns, and
I miss today’s opportunities for blessing those around me.

Lord, I don’t know what the future holds.
But I know You are there.
I know You are working today
to draw us further into the fullness of Your great blessings.

Lord Jesus, today matters.
Today I will keep my eyes and my heart fixed on You.
