I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

I caught this last glimpse of the sun just before it set ~ the plane is a crop duster.

What’s the point in borrowing trouble by worrying about tomorrow?  From time to time, though, we are all guilty of doing so.

Worrying serves no purpose.  As Christ reminds,

“Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
Matthew 6:34b

So, for all my fellow worry-ers, let’s purpose to live in the blessedness of the day God brings, and leave the cares of tomorrow where they belong ~ in the hands of the One who holds every tomorrow!

As sung by Alison Krauss

I don’t know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day;
I don’t borrow from its sunshine, For its skies may turn to gray.
I don’t worry over the future, Fore I know what Jesus said;
And today I’ll walk beside Him, For He knows what is ahead.

Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.

Every step is getting brighter As the golden stairs I climb;
Every burden’s getting lighter, Every cloud is silver lined.
There the sun is always shining, There no tear will dim the eye,
At the ending of the rainbow. Where the mountains touch the sky,

Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.

I don’t know about tomorrow, It may bring me poverty;
But the one who feeds the sparrow Is the one who stands by me.
And the path that is my portion May be through the flame or flood;
But His presence goes before me And I’m covered with His blood.

Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.

Friday Feature

Feature Friday

“Let another man praise you and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.”
Psalm 27:2

My Friday Feature was created as a unique format for highlighting some of my favorite Christian bloggers, instead of just using the typical Reblog. While a valuable tool for sharing favorite posts, Reblog is limited by how additional information can be shared on the front end and only gives the reader one glimpse of the site. Friday Feature is an avenue for me to share an overview, gleaned from my following the blog over a period. It is also my way of bragging on other writers, and to partner together with them in exalting Jesus.

Before starting the Friday Feature, I did not realize that getting permission ahead of time about the information shared was going to be difficult.  As a result, unless I am able to notify the author ahead of time as to specifics of what I will share, I will merely state my opinion of the site, but will avoid giving any further details.

By nature of the fact that I have only been blogging a short time, and thus have not gone back and read all of their posts, I may not agree with every idea of these featured authors. However, of the ones I have, I both enjoy and concur with the thoughtful entries by these fellow Christian bloggers, who are co-laborers in spreading the love and Truth of Christ. The ones featured are in no particular order of importance. Instead, I post those as God leads.

Be blessed by reading about today’s featured site:

Jon Lilley

During the short time since I began following his blog, I have been impressed with how consistently Jon Lilley shares Truth, yet does so in an engaging and often fun way. With every post, Jon adds great photos or images, customized with overlays of quotes and verses. The posts are concise, powerfully so!

Although I enjoy so many of Jon’s posts, one this week was particularly touching, and was a major contributing factor as to my decision to feature his site now.  In it, he shares about a recent tragedy involving some youth in his area. Jon handles the topic precisely how one should: by reminding us that we never know what tomorrow will bring. You may go directly to the link below for this thought-provoking post. My hope is that by reading, we will all remember to pray for those mourning the losses of these young lives and to recall how fleeting life really is. 

You Don’t Know What Tomorrow Will Bring
