Resting Tomorrow or Borrowing Trouble?
â€œReturn unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.â€ Psalm 116:7
I heard of a woman who woke up her husband because she thought she heard a burglar downstairs. He went down with a flashlight and was shining it around. Sure enough, there was a burglar in their home. He said, â€œHold it right there. Iâ€™ve got a gun on you.â€
He picked up the phone and dialed the police. â€œAnd another thing,â€ he said, â€œBefore you go, I want my wife to come down here and meet you. Sheâ€™s been looking for you for 24 years.â€
A lot of people are that way. They borrow trouble by anticipating or worrying about what may happen. What you need to do is stop looking to yesterday in guilt or anticipating tomorrow with anxiety.
Simply rest in the day the Lord has given you today.

So true. What a great article.
This is one of the reasons why I have been led to write A Journey of Faith, the story that God laid upon my heart. This devotion is one of many of the ways in which God declares His love for His children. Would you help me share my story by taking a moment to vote for my book to be published at http://soopllc.com/blog/book-ideas/journey-faith-ann-harrison? Your support is greatly appreciated. Feel free to take a look around my humble little blog and read some of my other inspirational writings.
I pray that you are richly blessed in the days ahead.
Love and prayers,
Cool! The Lord spoke to me today also about rest in my work… https://sorayarosaria.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/rest-in-team-work/
Sometimes the Lord speaks to me about my writing when I am reading. God bless, and take care.
