Just for today

Matthew 6:25-34

New Century Version (NCV)

25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.30 God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don’t have so little faith!31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’32 The people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33 Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Just for today, I will not worry about tomorrow.

Just for today, I will not be concerned about my provision.

Just for today, I will remember from whence my help comes from.

Just for today, I am reminded that the God of the Universe loves me, cares for me, and is providing His best for me.

Just for today, let me see the blessings, too numerous to count.

Just for today, let me see the beauty of love in those I encounter.

Just for today, reveal the wonders of creation and life.

Just for today, I stand in awe and amazement at this glorious life.

Just for today, help me to know the beauty of ashes.

Just for today, help me to know the comfort of sorrow.

Just for today, help me to know hope in the hopelessness I see before me.

Just for today, teach me the nearness of Your kingdom come here and now.
