Something Beyond Worry

Too much “tomorrow” brings us today’s word-of-the-week…

Spring’s coming. Easter’s in a few weeks. Lots of stuff to get ready for the bike tour in three months. Goals, plans, all sorts of interesting, fun stuff on the horizon.

What about NOW?

Am I the only one who gets so involved in what’s coming that I tend to forget about savoring what’s in front of me?

I can’t imagine floating through life with no objectives. It’s good to aim at worthy targets and have some idea where we’re trying to go.

But—I think there’s something to balance, and I notice lately that I’m focused maybe a bit too much on what’s down the road. Spring’s a season for that, so maybe you’re there as well.

Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34) Perhaps He was talking about something beyond worry. Perhaps He was talking about focus, concern, or attention. Maybe He was suggesting we keep our heart centered a bit more on the day before us.

Today’s Monday. It might be good to start the week with a commitment to now, to make sure this week doesn’t pass without notice. God’s got something remarkable in mind for the next few days. Let’s not miss it.

Have a great week.
