One of the best things about knowing Jesus is living for today, finding delight in the ordinary. Getting up, having coffee, reading the Word of God, going to work.
On my way into the surgery center, I had to pull off the road to take a photo of the sunrise. It’s not everyday that the clouds and timing are just right for a beautiful red sky.
As I was getting ready to prep my patient, my co-worker offered me a really helpful tip to make the prep even preppier. And if that wasn’t fantastic enough, another co-worker offered a different tip too! Little things that make the routine even more useful! These are tips I’ll remember to take with me when my adventure moves down the road to the next place.
There’s a beautiful lightness to living for today. The past is done. You can remember it, but you can’t change it, so don’t dwell on it too long. The future isn’t here and it isn’t guaranteed, so make your plans loosely. Leave room for the Lord to do His thing. Stand back. Be surprised and amazed at all the goodness He pours down on you!
Live for today. Rejoice in the Lord! Beyond today is all cherries on top!
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?Matthew 6:26
Happy Five Minute Friday!
