day 2880: One Day At A Time

“Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.”

It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that every company and organization is right now struggling to see what the future portends. With so much uncertainty it’s hard to see even around the corner, much less cast a vision that looks out years, or even months.  But, that doesn’t mean that we still aren’t supposed to try.  Today is the present.  Tomorrow is the future even though it is a small step forward.  So, planning tomorrow, even if that is all we have right now, is moving us forward.  So, one day at a time might be exactly what is needed right now.

I’m probably not alone in questioning God on what He is up to right now? Is it judgement? Is is it testing us?  Or is it readying us for a moment that can only be explained by what God can do?  Or is it all of the above? Does it matter really?  Ecclesiastes is always good for settling us down when we’ve reached that point when we are about to throw our hands up in the air and say, “I give”.  Pretty simple message: “There’s no use arguing with God about your destiny”.  When we get to that place of acceptance, then we can just turn it over to Him because we know He wants only the best for us and He gives that to us, even if only one day at a time.
