Every night before I go to bed, I close my eyes and say to myself “Tomorrow”. For me tomorrow is filled with promise of things to come. Tomorrow I may get that raise I have been waiting for, tomorrow I win a million dollars, tomorrow I may even meet the girl of my dreams. Tomorrow I may also die after wild horses come and trample my chindian body to a pulp, but I have hope. I believe that God is looking out for me.
I have faith in tomorrow, but not everybody does. There are people out there who doubt thier tomorrow will ever come. They are affraid they will never meet somebody, never fall in love, never get married, that they will grow old and die.
How do you convince somebody that there is a tomorrow. How do you make somebody have hope when they have lost all sence of hope. I have tried almost everything.
I have shared sucess stories of people who were single for years and then suddently when they where about to give up hope, God blessed them with somebody. I told her that she is still young, that God is still dealing with her before she is ready for his blessing. I have told her all the things that I hold on to while waiting for my turn.
How do you convince somebody who does not want to believe in Tomorrow? Somebody help. I’ll try and tell her why I believe.
Why do I beleive? I beleive because my tomorrow of yesteryears has come time and time again. When I was was 17 I longed for a chance to leave the small and quiet town Kota Tinggi, Johor. I did not know Jesus personally then, but I prayed as only a desperate teen can pray and I got my chance. When I was 19 I wanted to go overseas to study. I had gotten saved, and I prayed and prayed, and God have me a chance to go to Acadia. When I was 23 I wanted a car, I prayed and prayed, and I got my car. I wanted to travell, and here I am in Hanoi, and I have been to Hong Kong, Korea, Sri Lanka, Indonesia , The US, Canada, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Sure there were times where I didn’t get what I wanted. A few years ago I fasted and prayed for this girl, and she broke my heart. I have had my list failed relationship, but I am not bitter. I know that my God is in control. So my friend who I hope will be reading this. Today can be tomorrow, and If not, Tomorrow is only a day away. So Have hope, and Have faith.
25″Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ?
28″And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
