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.
