But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. -Hebrews 3:13
I am really bad about focusing on today. I am a list maker, an organizer, and a planner. I am quite honestly the world’s worst procrastinator in that I will attempt to put something off, only to worry over it so much that I wind up doing it anyways. Too often, especially during this time of the year, I catch myself working into a tizzy over all the things I have to get done for the next party, the next gift to buy, tomorrow’s plans.
So today, concentrate on the day. Be fully in today. It’s a gift, given to you with new mercies, new hope, and so much joy. Tomorrow will worry about itself.
