Love Handles Tomorrow

     Matthew 6:34 Therefore don't worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (HCSB)
 
     Scarlet O’Hara in Gone With The Wind was famous for her remark, “I’ll think about that tomorrow” (whatever that happened to be). I’ve been guilty of saying it a few times myself, but my thinking often leads to worrying instead of trusting. Jesus’ statement is thought provoking and true. Everyday has enough trouble to keep us busy without worrying about tomorrow’s troubles. But he doesn’t imply we should worry about today’s troubles any more than we should about tomorrows or yesterdays. God controls the challenges of today, tomorrow, next month, next year, etc. He can heal past hurts, and whatever comes our way, he’s big enough to handle it and has promised to because he loves us.
