I May Never See Tomorrow

Forgive-and-Love

Circle-Cross-1RoI may never see tomorrow; there’s no written guarantee
and things that happened yesterday belong to history.
I cannot predict the future, I cannot change the past.
I have just the present moment. I must treat it as my last.

I must use this moment wisely for it soon will pass away,
and be lost forever, as part of yesterday.
I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet,
be a friend unto the friendless, make an empty life complete.

The unkind things I do today may never be undone
and friendships that I fail to win may nevermore be won.
I may not have another chance on bended knees to pray
and I thank God with a humble heart for giving me this Day.


Reflection

Flower-Cross-RoJesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25)
