Today and Tomorrow


I'm thankful I don't know what tomorrow will bring. 

Such knowledge would rob me of the joy of today.

God is in control and knows the future.

No matter how beautiful the day is...or how stormy my day becomes, God knows about it and has it planned.

Elizabeth Elliott once prayed, 

"God, prepare me for what you've prepared for me."

Good prayer, huh?

I pray it these days too.

As I walked this morning, I listed to the old Gospel song,

"I Know Who Holds Tomorrow."

The Comfort of Quiet


Have you found a quiet place? One without TV? A spot where no  conversation is needed? No email? No social media? A site of total silence?

It's time we found such a place. Take a moment to shut out the noise. 

When you turn off the noise makers such as music, TV, and phone, what do you hear?

If you are home, you might hear the washing machine or dishwasher, or maybe the house settling. If you are outside, you might hear birds chirping. 

Turn your ear to your heart. Listen to what your soul tells you. If negative thoughts intervene, shoo them away. This is your moment to listen to God. Ask Him to speak blessings to you, and then sit back and wait.

What He reveals will flood you with relief, blessing, and energy.
