God Has Our Tomorrows

Today I realized that my Dad, soon to be 91 years old, is having some physical challenges, and that he will not be with us forever. Most of you know that he is my stepdad but I call him “Dad.” He married my Mom with three children so many years ago after my own biological dad abandoned us. He has loved us and taken care of us and has shared his sense of humor with us for so many years and we are blessed. He is a “Navy man” who always reminds us of how important it is to be an American and how important it is to elect the right leaders so that we will have the freedoms we enjoy every day. He is known in his community by the hat he proudly wears showing that he served his country in World War II. We assume our loved ones and special friends will be with us forever. Days go by and then all of a sudden something happens and you realize there may not be as many days and years that you will have them with you. I felt sad today and it robbed me of my energy but then as I brought my emotions and thoughts to the Lord, He reminded me that my Dad is still here. That the enemy of my soul wanted to rob me of what I had now. He was trying to take me to a day and time that has not yet happened. Isn’t that the way the devil is? The enemy of our soul likes to play mind games with us but God is greater. I then began to Praise the Lord for who He is and thanked him for what He will do. He will take care of Dad and help us if we have to deal with health challenges. How about you? Is the enemy of your soul trying to deplete your energy, make you feel defeated or feel fear? Bring it all to the Lord. He wants to sooth your soul and remind you that we do not have to worry about tomorrow. He is with us in all our tomorrows. Stay in the moment and receive His strength and comfort. “Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
