“Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” (Jam 4:14)

Worry is an insidious emotion. It can get a grip of us and cause us not to sleep and to be concerned for things that may be far into the future. Often they are circumstances that have not occurred and never will.

We have so little control over our lives as it is that self-determination is quite an illusion. When you look from an eternal perspective, we are as the Word says—merely a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow. So what should our reaction be to this truth? Why not enjoy today, this moment, while it lasts and learn to enjoy the journey as much as the destination?

Quick Prayer: Thank You for today. Amen.
