You've Only Got One Thing To Do!

Life can seem so overwhelming, but when you Live in Truth you live in the present. That means that all you have to worry about is now. You can’t change one single thing from the past. It’s over and done. You can’t force one single thing to happen in the future. You can plan and set goals, but sickness, natural disasters or other things can get in the way of your plans. All you actually have control over is this very moment, and, therefore, it is all you need to be concerned with. If you do what is right, right now, everything else will take care of itself.

So instead of fretting over having so much to do, or vexing over what you should have done or not done in the past, simply ask yourself what do I need to do right now and then do it. That is the ONLY thing you have to be concerned with. After it is done, the next thing will present itself.

The beauty of all this is realizing that when you concentrate on doing what is right, right now, you put yourself in a position where Jesus Christ can heal your past and lead you into a beautiful future. He’ll take care of everything if you just take care of now.

So take a deep breath and repeat with me, "I've only got one thing to do--what I'm doing right now."
