Don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34 NCV).
You can’t live in the past. You can’t live in the future. You can only live today. Why should you only live one day at a time? First, when you worry about tomorrow’s problems, you miss the blessings of today. Second, you cannot solve tomorrow’s problems with today’s power. When tomorrow arrives, God will give you the power, perspective, grace, and wisdom you need.
The Bible does not say, “Give us this day our WEEKLY bread.” It says, “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11 ESV). God wants you to depend on him one day at a time. He will provide everything you need. You will lack nothing.
It’s okay to plan for tomorrow. Just don’t borrow trouble from tomorrow. Trust God for each day as it comes.
“You have been granted a wish”
Your partner is not a mind reader, unless he’s Mel Gibson in the movie “What Women Want”. This is why you have to express your wishes and expectations. Otherwise, according to Solomon, you will become sick, and all you will be thinking is: “What I want is crystal clear.” Remember, glass can also be murky.
We have both made it a rule to clearly say what we envisage and what we expect on a daily basis. This rule, in contrast to the offside rule, makes incredible sense. It helps us enormously to understand each other.
My wife is the most important person to me. Therefore, I want to know how she wants me to look. Hairstyle, clothes and mustache should primarily please her. And if you’re reading this now –is it more likely for Jesus to come down to earth than her finding your mustache cool? What have you been longing for in and for your marriage for a long time? Are these wishes realistic in your partner’s point of view? What are the next steps?
Create a nice wish list. Instead of addressing it to Father Christmas, send it to your beloved. Start by writing down what gifts you can give. You can grant wishes.
