Often in life we plan for the future and forget about today.
When are we going on vacation?
When is the first of the month?
When am I going to retire?
I’m a college student in my second week at the University of West Georgia, and I was just thinking, “I don’t graduate until 2018.”
Often we think so big picture we either miss out on the present moment, but the present moments are the puzzle pieces to the big picture.
We might be in church and think about our afternoon plans, and miss the message that God sent to us.
We might be thinking that our kids go off to college in a year, and plan so extensively that we forget to cherish the moments while we have them.
Make sure you love on that child, and let them know that they are the most special person.
There’s nothing wrong with planning for the future.
But remember today is the road you take to get to tomorrow.
If you want to be a great student, you don’t wake up with all the knowledge.
You have to accumulate it through your studies.
A mechanic doesn’t just wake up with the skills to rebuild a transmission.
They learn over time from many methods.
Do you remember the first time you got behind the wheel?
Were you instantly a good driver?
You practiced and practiced until you didn’t clobber your neighbor’s mailbox with your tail lights.
If you want a strong tomorrow it starts with today.
Cherish the moment because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.
“Yesterday is History, Tomorrow’s a Mystery, Today is a Gift, That’s why it’s called the Present.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34 NKJV
