It may bring you wealth, the beginning of a sweet marriage, a fabulous opportunity towards travel, or it's just another 1,440 minutes (24 hours) for you. It may bring sickness, tragedy, or broken relationships. But, of course, it's also possible that your tomorrow may not even come!
Now, sit for a moment in your chair. Be still. Even just for one minute. Reflect - this tomorrow is often a source of people's anxiety or psychopathology. Just reflect on these 2 borrowed statements from Proverbs and James of Scripture: ".... you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow ... " and "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth."
You got that? You may say them aloud several times. Your tomorrow, our tomorrow, is an X-factor. It's a mystery. It cannot be predicted with accuracy. No doctor, seer, or psychiatric system can explain your tomorrow. It defies all attempts to be unveiled. It lies hidden in the depths of the plan of our Creator. You can plan, you can predict, you can fear, you can dream -- but, the bottom line is, you do not know.
Think about the meaning of what I'm saying here about your tomorrow. It has implications to your own life, mental or emotional health, friendships, family, work. Are you prepared for "anything" tomorrow? Is your present faith or confidence on something or someone stable enough to nourish and support your "anything" tomorrow?
There it is ... the indisputable reality of our lives. You and I can live only one day at a time. Make sure you know the greatest Psychotherapist who ever lived. Only He can secure and bring peace into your tomorrow and beyond.
