A Day with Joni ~ One Day at a Time
Therefore, take no thought about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will take thought about the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the trouble thereof.
– Matthew 6:34
We’ve heard it a million times as a cliché, in a song or as an overused
piece of advice that carries little weight. But if we really think about it,
it’s an answer to the questions we often ask: “How do I do
this?” “How can I get through this?” “How do I get
over this?” “How do I heal from this?” One day at a time!
If we’re honest, we don’t want to be told that something is going to
take time. Process might as well be a four-letter word. We want it now! But
taking life one day at a time allows us to make the most out of God’s
plan for this day. We can make the most out of our relationships. We can make
the most out of this day’s lessons and experiences. Today, you can allow
God to continue unfolding His plan and His story for your life. When you focus
on the present, you can trust the God who heals your past and holds your
future. You can do this, get over this, get through this, and heal from this
– one day at a time.
O Lord, I thank You that Your mercies are new each morning. You’ve
ordained each of my days. And this is the day You have made! Help me to rest
in You this day – to trust in Your process – for You have my very
best interests at heart. In Jesus’ name.
