What point is there for me to think about tomorrow and the next day when I have today?
But what if this happens or that happens?
What if it does, God will say. You have today -- I have given it to you. Focus on this day. Focus on Me. There are enough troubles on this day. If you turn to Me, I will help you through them all.
What about when I don't remember to turn to Jesus? What about when I get so caught up in whatever is going on, I forget?
You are human. You will forget. But when you do remember, come unto Me. Confess your sins, ask forgiveness. Start again to focus on Me.
I need to remember, over and over. Jesus is with me, today, tomorrow, all the time, always. He said He was. He said He would be.
When I am angry and release my anger in undignified ways, I am reacting as the world I see around me says is okay. I have my rights, after all.
But I am not a child of the world; I am a child of God. It is to God I am to look, not elsewhere.
Why do I forget from where I came? Why do I think my rights count more than anything else?
Am I not grateful for what the Lord has given me today?
Why do I find it necessary to seek elsewhere to find that which will satisfy me at a given moment?
Why am I not satisfied with what I have?
Why do I think satisfaction is in the world?
Why did I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when it seems I don't accept His way as The Way?
How can I possibly be a child of God and yet do not live my life as though I am?
Who do I think I am fooling?
God is under no delusions. He knows what is going on. I will pay the consequences of my sins, and so will you.
Why do I find fault with everyone around me -- what they do, how they act?
Do I ever find myself wrong? Do I never do wrong?
Do I ever try to correct my faults?
Do I acknowledge my inconsistencies?
Am I ever grateful?
Why don't I trust some people?
Where do my kids pick up such filthy language?
Do I ever think about what I say, how I say it?
