“Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I love ya, Tomorrow….You’re always a day away!”. Remember that Broadway song from “Annie”?

I don’t know about you, but I tend to say “tomorrow” a lot.  “Awww, I don’t feel like doing dishes right now.  I’ll do ’em tomorrow.”  “My room is a disaster, but there’s always tomorrow.”  “I’d really like to go shopping and then get my hair cut, but — I can do it tomorrow.”

Do you do this? Surely, I can’t be the only one, I hope. Do you put off till tomorrow what you really could be doing today?  And, the reason you’re not doing it today is that other “stuff” has gotten in your way?

Or, on the other hand, is today going so badly for you that you say, like Annie,  “Surely tomorrow will be better.”  “I hope my health gets better tomorrow, because today I don’t feel good at all.”  “I hope I get a job tomorrow, because I’m not making much headway putting out applications today and all my bills are due.”

Tomorrow can mean so many things to each of us at any given time in our lives.

I was curious about what God says about tomorrow, so I went to my trusted friend Google, and I use the term very loosely might I add, and looked up Bible verses about tomorrow.  There are several, but the ones that stuck out the most are:

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousess (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things (food, clothing, etc.)  taken together will be given you besides.  So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own.  Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.”   Matthew 6:33, 34  The Amplified Version

So, just like Annie, when we are faced with days that are “gray and lonely, we can stick out our chin and grin and say…. Oh!  The sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun!”  Well, maybe not, but we don’t have to worry about it today, and we can trust in our loving God and Heavenly Daddy to care and protect and provide for us today too, inspite of what it all looks like out there.  He feeds the sparrows and clothes the flowers, so how much more will He care for us!

Ok, so what about putting off till tomorrow what we don’t feel like doing today?  Well, “there’s an app for that”, or should I say verse?

“The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish but that all should turn to repentance.”  2 Peter 3:9  The Amplified Version  (underlining for emphasis, mine)

“For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation).  Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation!” 2 Corinthians 6:2  The Amplified Version   (underlining for emphasis, mine)

There’s all kinds of things we can put off till tomorrow and it won’t matter one little whit.  But, if you have been thinking about, mulling over, and trying to decide if you want to give Jesus a second thought, may I encourage you to jump in with both feet and receive Him into your heart as Savior and Lord.  You won’t regret it, I promise!!  I say this because, sad as this sounds, you may not have tomorrow.

We all think tomorrow is a given, but we all know of many people, friends, family, in each of our lives who died, tragically, before their time (or so we think).  No one knows when it’ll be too late and tomorrow never comes…at least in this life.

Please, don’t wait.  Let the “Son” come out for your tomorrow, today.  Let your gray and lonely days be filled with “Sonshine” everyday.  He makes even those days better and more fulfilling.

I would love to hear your thoughts…. I made the decision for Jesus at age 18 and never looked back.  As long as you are still breathing, it’s never too early or too late!  So, what about your tomorrow?
