I’m back for another Music Monday! (Insert clapping here) Yes, I’m still alive and well! College is keeping me busy y’all! I had an amazing Fall Break, which I will hopefully get to share with y’all soon!
This song by Hollyn has been in my head for the past few days. I’m loving the powerful message of it. He is coming soon to fight for us, He is our strength when we are weak, and He is always there to rescue us! We have hope!
Tomorrow. What is tomorrow? Better yet where is tomorrow and when will it show up? You know the saying, “tomorrow never comes.” It’s true. Then why do we always say, “Oh, it can wait.” or “I’ll do it tomorrow.” Why do we think so much about what will happen tomorrow when we can do it today? God says this about tomorrow in Matthew 6:34.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
And Joyce Meyers says, “When we worry about tomorrow we waste today.”
Lately I have been so caught up in my future plans and what will happen in the next few months that I have been wasting my time right now. I need to remind myself to make TODAY count. These lyrics from Tomorrow (from Annie) came to mind.
The sun’ll come out
So ya gotta hang on
Come what may
I love ya Tomorrow!
Tomorrow is always a day away. That goes back to what I mentioned in the beginning of this post, tomorrow never comes. So why wait for tomorrow to do what you could do today? I am challenging myself, but also am challenging y’all this next week try to not worry about tomorrow but focus on what you can accomplish today. My verse for this year also goes hand in hand with this.
Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
And here is a bonus song for y’all. (I own nothing! All rights go to Mandisa and producers)
So the other day I was reading in Matthew, and stumbled across some things that I thought would make a great lesson/devotion, for all of us. So when Jesus was calling His disciples to follow Him, here’s what happened. From Matthew 4:19-22
‘”Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed Him.
Going on from there, he saw two brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with there father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called to them, and immediately they left their father and followed Him.’
Now the key words that really popped out at me were, at once and immediately. They didn’t even hesitate. It says they immediately followed Him. They didn’t ask their father if they could go, they just went! it didn’t say, ‘a day later they found Jesus and followed Him. No! They went right then, no question! And that is what we need to do in our lives. We need to follow Him, what ever He says, and do it now!
I think the song above really sums it all up, we need to take the back seat and let God lead us!
