WHAT DOES YOUR TOMORROW LOOK LIKE! 

Sunday’s Monday


      OK! I am aware of the fact that I wrote about tomorrow last week but there is more! My church has me infatuated with the word more and all that it implies. It was during this time I pondered on this thought, no one can see tomorrow, as well, I know it’s true that no one has the power to control tomorrow. But, with that being said I believe we all have a strong influence on what tomorrow brings through how we live today. After 74 years I realize that tomorrow is simply an extenuation of today’s decisions, attitudes, and actions. Every one of us goes to bed with thoughts of today on our mind which affects the way we rest. A good day usually means a great night’s sleep and a bad day is the opposite. Only a few understand it’s a time to reflect on how much like Jesus you were. Each day is a spiritual test and Satan will throw the bullies, bad bosses, irate people, and insane situations, to reveal the Jesus in us. This influences our tomorrow and builds character for either good or bad. As is explained in Proverbs 11:5-8 (NIV), The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. 6. The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires. 7. Hopes placed in mortals die with them; all the promise of their power comes to nothing. 8. The righteous person is rescued from trouble, and it falls on the wicked instead. I lived in fear of that next shoe dropping because I wouldn’t change!

 

      As for me, I was a real live test dummy for this scripture, for years I ran straight into bad days. There were many times that I would predict my bad days and then prove them true. I didn’t want them, I didn’t enjoy them and yet I was the primary cause of them through my previous decisions, actions, and attitude. Let’s be honest, in our current frame of mind, we are busy looking for the bad within said day. My pasture used to say, “The truth is whatever we’re looking for, is what we will usually find because that is what we’re focused on.” Now that nailed it for me! That was me in a nutshell! I would get so focused on the bad that I couldn’t see the good! Matthew 12:34 (NIV), You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. This brought many sleepless nights and worrisome days to me. My heart was full of selfish wants and desires.

 

        I had become a disaster looking for somewhere to happen. My decision-making and my attitude were in the toilet and my actions revealed it. I awakened one morning with the vision that the only common denominator in all of this was me. I was there for every decision, I was responsible for every action, I was the custodian of my attitude, I entertained my thoughts, and stayed so busy creating my problems, that I never had time or thought toward helping anyone else. That morning, I received the revelation of change, and it was not as I understood it. Change that happens around you is of little help to you; it’s the change that Jesus brings into you that changes everything. Jesus renewed my mind to receive His teachings, He restored my heart to receive His love, I was filled with hope for tomorrow and planned for good days, and I found a lot of good in people and a lot of good people as well. The world became better but nothing I saw or did compare with the transition that was taking place inside of me. The two biggest memories that I have from receiving Jesus are, that I fell on my knees and asked God to not let me forget that horrifying feeling of emptiness, the heartbreak in loneliness, the deep-seated irrefutable feeling of insignificant, and the reality of total worthlessness. To name a few thoughts that vaguely describe what I was feeling on that day. I didn’t want to forget so I would always have empathy for those still there. Ponder on Matthew 6:33-34 (NIV), But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. If you’re looking for a better tomorrow, ask Jesus to help you become a better you today! Jesus has a plan for each day, ask Him what your day will be.

 

      Father God, I am coming to you today seeking understanding for myself and the readers. I would like to know more about enjoying better tomorrows, would you lead us to the scriptures that explain what we must do? Lord, give us the desire to seek the changes needed in us to bring us closer to you and find better days. Have each of us discover that change must come to improve our relationship and give us an appreciation for who we are in you. Lord, I thank you that we may lay in anticipation of tomorrow with the excitement of serving with you. Now, I ask for you to lead each reader to give a few extra minutes seeking self-change and insight into “who we are today will have a huge impact on our tomorrow.” Amen

 

Have a blessed week by being a blessing to others
