Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.
Henry Ward Beecher
What relationship with the future will you choose?
Some people believe that tomorrow is likely to be better. Better opportunities, better technology, a brave new day to make a new kind of difference.
Others think that yesterday was a lot better than today. Tomorrow represents diminished resources, fewer opportunities, one step closer to the end.
Yes the future is unpredictable and represents that dreaded word "change".
But the future isn't so much about absorbing or tolerating change, it's about making change.
The thing is, the future happens. Every single day, like it or not. Sure, tomorrow is risky, frightening and in some way represents one step closer to the end. But it also brings with it the possibility of better and the chance to do something that matters.
So here is what I know, we can live with confidence because God wants to give us hope and holds our future (Jeremiah 29:11). So let's step into the future, trust God and grab the handle of faith because "It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going." 2 Corinthians 5:7 (The Message)
