Today is the bridge that takes us to the sunrise of tomorrow. With the rising of the sun, there is new hope that life can be different, that life can be beautiful.
Do you remember the Broadway musical "Annie?" There is a haunting and moving song sung by the captivating little girl that goes, "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow. You're only a day away!"
The good news is that nothing that ever happens in life comes as a surprise to our Heavenly Father. When tomorrow comes God will be there to welcome you and take your hand and help you realize that tomorrow can be beautiful! Never, ever give up hope that tomorrow's sunrise will bring blessings and that as today's dusk turns to night, there is rest and sleep to give you new strength to face tomorrow!
If you are one of those dear friends who often read what I write, you know that I stress the importance of taking on the day and making the most of it, but I'm also thankful that no matter how we have failed or fallen short of our potential today, as long as there is God and life, there is hope for tomorrow!
Yes, tomorrow can be beautiful. As Annie sings, "Just thinking about tomorrow clears away the cobwebs and the sorrows till there's none." May you walk across the bridge of today and see your hopes and dreams come together tomorrow.
The purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
