Simply put, I know there are no new thoughts in the world. As I live, words and thoughts touch my life profoundly. So today I'm not writing anything personally. I am borrowing today's thought from the book, One Day At A Time. I can only hope that it can impact you as profoundly as it impacts me.
Just for today I will not be afraid of anything. If my mind is clouded with nameless dreads, I will track them down and expose their unreality. I will remind myself that God is in charge of me and mine and that I have only to accept His protection and guidance. What happened yesterday need not trouble me today.
This is a brand new shining day and I have it in my power to make it a good one just by the way I think about it and what I do with it.
If I live just this one day at a time, I will not so readily entertain fears of what might happen tomorrow. If I am concentrating on today’s activities, there will be no room in my mind for fretting and worrying. I will fill every minute of this day with something good-seen, heard, accomplished. Then, when the day is ended, I can look back on it with satisfaction and serenity.
“I recall the words of an old ditty that said: ‘Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.’”
