This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us be full of joy and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
One thing the Lord has been teaching me lately is to be thankful and embrace the day He has given me. As church planters' wives, and pastors' wives dreaming about the future with our husband is part of it. We start filling ourselves with dreams and expectations of what the future could hold for us and the church God has called us to lead.
However, God gives us dreams and visions to chase after, but I don't think He ever wants us to skip out on what He has given us today. He probably doesn't want us to view our days "on pause" until the big moment happens in a couple years. We are not promised tomorrow, and sometimes we get so caught up with what is tomorrow that we miss His glory, Beauty, and Will for us in today.
In this season of rest our family has been called to, I am learning more and more of what it looks like to be thankful for the moments I have today instead of looking toward what tomorrow or next year holds our family. When everything has been stripped, ministry, identities, jobs, the norm, what do we have left? I want to get to the point Jesus is all I need for the day. Not whats next, or the big dreams I have for me and the church.
This is the day the Lord has given me. He hasn't given me tomorrow, next week, or a year from now yet. He has given me today, and I want to embrace every second and moment and be thankful for all He has given me. I want to see His glory and allow Him to woo me and capture my heart in the now, and forever be changed by today.
Matthew 6:34 Let tomorrow worry for itself
Pastors' wives embrace, be thankful and glad in it.
