“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:34 ESV
This has been one of the most difficult things for me to do – not to worry about the past or the future. The past is finished; the future isn’t here and none of us really knows what the future will be. So why worry?
I have started doing one thing which I got from a YouTube video and, I apologise, I do not remember what the title is. What I learned was that as my mind begins wandering in the past or wondering in the future, I say to myself, “Back to Now!” As was shown in the video, NOW is all we have. We don’t even have control of what was one second ago or what will be in one second in the future. That’s not to say that a person should not plan.
Making a plan is helpful to be able to meet the changes and challenges of what comes up – what happens. That’s the way to work in the NOW. But plans should be for projects, studies, or other activity, not for the whole day. Keeping God ever in our minds, ever knowing of God’s presence, will fill the time where there is no activity. In reality, God should be in our minds even during the activity. God is a great guide, especially when we get stuck in that project or study – that one class which is really bugging us.
Just think about those things. If I remember or find that title of the video, I’ll post it. I just need to write things in my journal more!
