For my devotionals I use the book by Joyce Meyer, The Power of being Thankful.
I just can't believe with each devotional on the day that it is to be read how meaningful it is for that day.
The Gift of Right Now
So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and
anxieties of its own. Matthew 6:34
There is an anoiting ( God's presence and power) on today. In John 8:58, Jesus referred to HImslef as "I AM". If you and I , as his disciples, try to live in the past or the future, we are going to find life hard for us because Jesus is always in the present.
Jesus has plainly told us we don't need to worry about anyting. All we need to do is seek HIm and his ways, and He will add to us whatever we need, whether it is food or clothing or shelter or spiritual growth. We don't need to be concerned about tomorrow. Insted, we can concentrate on today and thank God for today's blessings.
Calm down and lighten up! Laugh more and worry less. Don't ruin today by worrying about yesterday or tomorrow, neither of which you can do anything about. Enjoy today while you still can!
Let us pray. I am grateful, Lord, for this day that You have given me. With Your help, I'm going to live in the present, not in the past or in the future. I thank You for what you ahve in store for me today. In your name we pray AMEN
