Tomorrow Is a New Day, Weary Momma

Imagine how difficult life would be if our hard days actually ‘never ended.’ Thankfully this will never happen…at least not in clock time. God guarantees a finish point. But worrying will ‘never end’ in our mind if we allow our thoughts free reign. And that’s where the power of now comes into play. When we live in the now, trusting God for everything related to what is, we will experience hope, joy, and love by default. And even when our now is challenging, we always have an opportunity to regroup when the sun blazes back into view.

I’ve been practicing this mindful nowness  in small chunks over the past year. It works. Like magic. My goal is to ditch the training wheels soon (another phrase for giving up control which I CAN’T STAND!) and dive deep into accepting, enjoying, dealing, appreciating, and praying through whatever God puts before me with gratitude and love. I pray you can experience something similar.

We moms work hard. We deserve a clean slate each day. And no matter what happens during each 24 hour segment, God promises to have our back, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matthew 6:34 (NLT)

Let’s live in the NOW, crazy Mommas. Now is all we have. And in the end, isn’t it everything?
