“Only those who place tomorrow in God’s hands and receive what they need to live today are truly secure. Receiving daily liberates us from tomorrow. Thought for tomorrow delivers us up to endless worry.”

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God Is In the Manger

I spent so many years hoping for today to be over as tomorrow was surely better. I squandered the gift of God for an unknown and unpromised mirage.

Let us be clear: There is no tomorrow. There is just the present. Grasp the now. Hold it. Kiss it. As God has given this exact moment just for you – all of the pain and sorrow and joy. His gift to you.

If you can do this you will be free.
