Five Minute Friday: Tomorrow

Full of hope, full of possibility, tomorrow is.  Tomorrow always feels and looks better than the end of today.  I suppose at the end of my today's, I generally feel some sense of regret.  I regret something I said.  I regret that thing, that most important thing, that I failed to say.  And often, I regret that thing I should have done...but didn't do.

I dream of tomorrow often.  Tomorrow I am a better wife, a better friend, a better mama, a better sister, a better neighbor.

I also think of the astoundingly refreshing truth, which is that Jesus is in my today just as much as he is in my tomorrow. So even though I have regrets, he has only good thoughts toward me tomorrow.  Just like he had only good thoughts toward me today.  And maybe tomorrow, I can give myself a little more grace.

  1. Yes! Grace for today, tomorrow, and for all those yesterdays. It's hardest to give grace to myself!

    It's refreshing to know that I am not alone in all of those end of day feelings.

    1. Stephanie,
      love this hopefulness and reminder of grace. We were of the same thought this week! (I'm post #13)
      Remember the Great is Thy Faithfulness Hymn?
      "Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow...blessings all mine with ten thousand beside."
      Always loved that line.

  3. Reading above, I see this is your first FMF. I'm glad I stopped by! I didn't recognize your face in the linkup so I wanted to say hello, and welcome!

    I totally resonate when you say at the end of your todays, you feel a sense of regret - of things left undone or unsaid. Great post!

  5. I resonate with your thoughts. I've had those days when I got to the end and I wished for a do-over. But thankfully, as you shared, Jesus is with us in the todays, and in the tomorrows. And He gives us grace through all of it. Your post refreshed me. :)

    Stopping by from FMF. :)
