Every Day Has Its Own Challenges

Dear Lord.


Today is a new day, a new portion of hours You placed in my hands. Today, I have many things in mind I wish to start, continue or complete. I have ideas, projects, desires, and responsibilities, all of them I would like to do. But You have said that I must set priorities and that I must do it wisely in order to succeed. Reaping the fruit of my labour, in some sense brings its own rewards, but it all takes effort. Help me remember that I can only live one day at a time, that I can’t do everything I might want while the sun goes back to its hiding place. Give me peace, give me wisdom to manage every minute well, and help me not to be frustrated by what I failed to do, but rather, satisfied with what I have accomplished. A new day will come, and with it, a new opportunity…


“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
