Every single day my mind wanders to the next best thing. I drift off into the potential lying in tomorrow, instead of grabbing the horns of today.
Especially as a millennial, I plan, dream and create for a beautiful tomorrow. As if it's my job.
Mystical sayings take place on greeting cards and calligraphy on Pinterest boards that wrap around the concept of "the best days of your life are unplanned." It's almost so cheesy that I can hardly make it through the sentence. But, after one of the most soul-filling, unexpected weekends of my life, I have realized it is true.
I now propose that planning, dreaming and creating for a beautiful tomorrow is not a cause-and-effect relationship, but just an opportunity and privilege. Reality is that God is always ready to share his joy and blessings to his children and we really don't have much to do with it.
I quit planning, dreaming and creating out of a need for a beautiful tomorrow, but instead walk in obedience and awe of God and do as such because I can. He promises to take care of our todays AND tomorrows so I'm choosing to believe that.
I'm dropping my pride and picking up my trust to joyfully step into the unexpected beauties of each day curated by Christ alone, not. by. me.
