The Privilege of Today

He is our help and our shield.
In Him our hearts rejoice, 
for we trust in His holy name. 
Let Your unfailing love surround us, Lord,
for our hope is in You alone.
Psalm 33:20-22

Give your entire attention to 
what God is doing right now, 
and don't get worked up about 
what may or may not happen tomorrow.
Matthew 6:34

The Lord has been wanting me 
to be aware--continually-- 
that I am wrapped in His unfailing love.
My hope has to be Him, no matter what.
If I live with this mindset,
I can give my entire attention
to what He is doing right now.
I hate that I can so easily miss out 
on this God-breathed moment
because I am "worked up"
about what may or may not happen
tomorrow, or next week or whenever.
Today, Lord, I commit my trust to You.
Again. And probably again later.
I want to be so aware of Your love 
in the moments.

I am grateful for this moment;
today is a privilege.
I am mindful of the quote:
"Here ends another day, 
during which I have had eyes, ears, hands 
and the great world around me. 
Tomorrow begins another day. 
Why am I allowed two?”

 I delight in the privilege of life 
You have given me today.
I roll every concern that I have about tomorrow
into Your hands and I embrace this moment.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Take delight in Him,
and He will give you your heart’s desires.
Trust Him, and He will help you. ~Ps. 37
