Tomorrow I’ll enjoy life…

Standard

Proverbs 21:17 Whoever loves pleasure will suffer want; whoever loves wine and oil will not be rich. 

This verse is a warning against the love of leisure, good meals, and the like – particularly at the expense of one’s productivity and responsibility. What I tend to see more often these days are people who work so much they don’t actually enjoy what they earn. It’s an imbalance opposite the one mentioned here.

As I’m getting older I becoming more aware how fleeting life can be. Everything can seem to be going just fine – until it’s not. Tragedy has a way of stealing from us time we assumed was ours in the future. Tomorrow I’ll enjoy life. Tomorrow I’ll visit those I love. Tomorrow I’ll see the sights I don’t have time for today.

And then… there are no more tomorrows.

Or I’m no longer able to do things I planned to do “one day”.

Perhaps the time to enjoy the life God has given to us as a gift… is now.

    Where is the prayer?
    Like: Please, God, help me look deeply into my life and see if I am working so hard in one part of it that I forgot to enjoy the good results.
