Choosing Faith Each Day, Matthew, Paul

Day 8: Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

It has been a week, since I found out that my mom has a tumor in her brain. The doctor said that she had a month to live, if it was not detected. The surgery is a week from today. I am thankful to have this time with her. I feel like it is a gift.

What does God want me to do? I think all I can do is pray and try to serve God. I don’t know the outcome of this surgery. God does. I just know that God’s will shall be done. God has perfect timing and planning for everyone.

I do think about the possibilities. What if her surgery does not go well? What if it goes great? What is a miracle occurs? What does each outcome really mean on a daily basis? I cannot worry about tomorrow. I cannot control the outcome. I can just take it one day at a time. Each day will have enough worries.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
–Matthew 6:34 (NIV)

I trust that God’s grace will be sufficient for me. I am weak, so God’s greatness can hold me up and make me strong.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
–2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
