This post is a part of Five Minute Friday, a writing flash mob that happens every week when writers are prompted by a single word to write for 5 minutes without any major editing. Just raw thoughts and emotions. You can find out more and/or join the party here.
I am super late with my post this week…..oops!
Speak the word tomorrow, and plans and dreams come flooding into your mind’s eye. Do you have a picture of your tomorrow in mind now? Are you willing to budge any on that picture? What if it never comes? God promises us many things in His Word, but He never once promises us a tomorrow. What if you realized you had run out of tomorrows? Would your yesterdays and today seem like enough? Of course the answer for most of us is no.
Thoughts like these always bring to mind my big brother. One morning he woke up, told his wife what he wanted for breakfast, and when she came back upstairs to get him, he couldn’t move his arms or legs. Off to the hospital and they discovered he had an aneurism in his brain step. Surgery, brain surgery. He never woke up. I didn’t make it back from vacation in Hawaii in time to say goodbye. That’s the short and sweet version, but as with many stories there is so much more that went on.
So, I urge you, as you plan for tomorrow, make sure you are living for today as well. You never know when you, or someone you love will run out of tomorrows.
