I wanted to share this with all:
Living Day by Day
"Life by the mile is a trial; by the inch is a cinch." In the past, we got into trouble when we thought we had to live our lives mapped out forever. That just did not work.
We need only deal with the problems and joys of today. If we try to see too far ahead, we loose touch with the reality of here and now. The Lord lets us know what we need to know when we need to know it.
What seems impossible when looked at in total—writing a book, putting the children through college, abstaining for the rest of our lives—becomes manageable when worked step-by-step, day-by-day.
So many things we worry about never happen. How much better it is to concentrate our energies on the real demands and challenges of today, insignificant as they may seem. When we turn our lives over to our Higher Power, we trust Him to manage the master plan and to direct us in the small details of living each day.
Show me, Lord, how to best live each day. I leave the years to You.
