I’ve been embracing the power of today this academic year by trying to live the words of Matthew 6:34 (NIV): “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

I can’t worry about tomorrow because I have too many things to tend to today.  And that is not just a platitude.  I haven’t the time, energy, or inclination to worry about what tomorrow will bring because today keeps me plenty busy.  Now of course, I plan and look to the future, but worry about the next day?  I am way too busy today.

So when I find myself bemoaning all of the things piling up in my life, I have to remind myself that through the endless demands I’m facing, God is showing me how to live His word.

And I have to be thankful for that.
