Today’s Concerns

When I look back on all these worries I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened. ~ Winston Churchill

Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will bring its own worries.
Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
Twelve Step programs direct us to take it
one day at a time. The Big Book
suggests we pray for strength to do the right thing,
and from that we come to seek to know
the next right thing. When we get ahead of ourselves
we find that we, too, have a lot of trouble in this life,
most of which never happened.
