Somewhere in Tomorrow
But that's a myth outside of heaven. It's a lie that fades away as Today melts into Tomorrow and I fid that where some problems and pains have passed on, new ones have replaced them. I'm still the same me, no matter whether I'm in Tomorrow or Today.
And I'm still not satisfied, still looking beyond the sunset towards the next Tomorrow on the horizon.
Oh, that it would sink in that the Tomorrow I've always longed for is Heaven! It's not something I'll grasp on earth. But some days that just doesn't click.
So I drown myself in stories of valour and fantasies of a world where I am everything that I want to be. And I shy further away from today.
I want Tomorrow now. I want everything to be fixed the way I want it ---now. I want to be the person of my goals ---now. But I'm not.
So I look to the sunset and it just seems so far away, and the durt under my feet is just a little too real.
So I need help to look at Today and see its purpose. I need a Vision that includes homeschooling and dirty dishes and small group meetings and writing.
Because Tomorrow will always be in the future. On this earth, nothing is ideal. But as I walk this life, as I live in the not yet, as I wait and long with groaning for my true home --- I want to live a extraordinary life. Loving God, loving people, even when the difficulties of Today cast a dust cloud over my vision for Tomorrow.
Because Tomorrow, the true Tomorrow, is coming.
And I can't wait.
God, help me to live Today.
