One day at a time

Re:Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day one) “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11) “Do not worry about tomorrow. . .each day has enough trouble of its own” (vs 34)  There have been moments in my life when this principle was not only necessary but easy.  Good days and bad.  During months of chemotherapy a few years ago I discovered  this capacity.  I had no other choice.  Every ounce of my energy was required for things immediately ahead.  I did not “worry forward”.  Good times have had the same effect.  A wedding. . .a time of progress . . .in the joy of the moment, my anxiety about the future faded, cancelled out by the goodness of God.  Ultimately,  the Lord desires this attitude for every day.  Just as He gave manna in the wilderness,  God is capable of taking care of me.  By trusting Him, I can negotiate a new contract, make a new commitment.  I will live today without worry!
