I haven’t seen past tomorrow
To where what’s next might be
Nor can I gaze at the yonder
Or hold captive, my destiny
But what I have as perception
Says to me each day
Guard well every moment of living
With God and your loves in “The Way”
The only permanent thing that is set in stone is God’s everlasting and unconditional love for us. Tomorrow can never be certain or for sure. No matter what plans we make and how much we make them, there are times when things do not go according to plan. God gifts us with many wonderful things such as a family, a circle of friends, and the opportunity to live our lives everyday. In fact, our lives are so precious and eternity with God is among us. We do not have ultimate control on what happens to us. It is not guaranteed that what we think will occur is actually going to occur. James 4:13 states:
“Come now, who you say, ‘Today or tomorrow, we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’ – yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.'”
Love requires excellence. If you love God, then you must love others around you, and vice-versa. The tragic events that happen in our lives are a subject to us waking up and realizing that we have lost the opportunity. Time is very important, precious, and priceless. It is of the essence that God provides for us, but can go away quickly in a heartbeat. We cannot chase down time that has been lost. Therefore, it is important to grab it and cherish it. Today is a reality, and tomorrow is a fantasy.
May God Bless You All.
