One Day at a Time

We should be thankful that life comes to us in such little bits.

We can always live one day well enough.
We can always carry one day’s burdens.
We can always do one day’s duties.
We can always endure one day’s sorrows.

It is a blessing that one day is all that God ever gives us at a time. We should be thankful for the nights that cut off our tomorrows from our view, so that we cannot even see them until they dawn. The little days, nestling between the nights like quiet valleys between the hills, then seem so safe and peaceful.

[J.R. Miller]

Deuteronomy 33:25 … Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.

Psalm 118:24 … This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Matthew 6:34 … Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
