Don't Carry Tomorrow's Load - Take it One Day at a Time - Matthew 6:34

worry, don't worry about tomorrow, Matthew 6:34
"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ― Corrie ten Boom 

If you think I've written a few other Bible Love Notes about Matthew 6:34, you'd be right. 

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." 

I love the brilliant, God-anointed principle in Matthew 6:34. But I need to be reminded of it. 

Part of Christian growth is reminding ourselves of God's principles regularly. Paul says this in Philippians 3:1: "It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you."

So, friends, can you handle life's problems for the next 24 hours? Then I want to remind you that's all you need to do. God will give you new strength each day.

  2. Oh, so true. Thank you for this reminder that our worry about tomorrow takes away what we can accomplish today in His name.

  3. Corrie use to tell a story that I read probably in the late 70's. She said that one day when she was waiting to board a train with her dad, she asked him if she could have her ticket in advance. Her dad wisely saw this as an opportunity to teach his daughter. He told her that her ticket was like God's Grace...that he would give it to her when she was about to board when she needed it.
