This is what I tell myself when I’m having a bad day. “I only have to do today.” Good thing. Because I can’t do tomorrow yet.
And it’s good for when I feel the weariness of day after day after day, season after season after season. How many more times do I have to load the dishwasher? Make the bed? Cook supper?
Just today. I only have to do it today.
I may GET to do it tomorrow. But there are no guarantees. So I’ll be happy to do them today.
“This is the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do,” also helps with a bad day. It’s a good thought for when I have to face a difficult task. Public speaking, breaking bad news to someone, biopsies, etc.
But the good news is I’ll never be asked to do anything more difficult than this life. This is as hard as it gets. I’ve never read anything in the Bible about the “trials of Heaven”. I have heard of tearlessness, comfort, peace, home, the Presence of God, but never trials. Guess that’s why it’s Heaven.
