Spread Your Wings

• Sep. 11, 2007


"The future", with is vastness, its infinitude,--so distant, so beyond our power,--grows out of the use you make of the present, so small, so near, so completely at your disposal. Reality borrows from futurity, from eternity...What is seed? It is the future harvest. What is the present hour? It is the future age,--a destiny of happiness or misery. What is this field before you? It is all that you can make of it by industry, by effort, by vigilance, by enterprise."

Quote from 'The Love of Truth', Anonymous.

We, the youth of our generation, are beginning to set foot in that vast place called the future, but what we do now so greatly affects this! However, as we wonder about our future, we must remember that the whole point of these ideas are not to fixate every thought on what is to come, but to apply ourselves with heart, soul and mind to the importance of today! God has given us today, and he has not gifted us with tomorrow quite yet. Consider carefully the things you do today, because their effects will drastically impact your life tomorrow.

Matthew 6:34 (NASB)

"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."


God bless each and every one of you as you strive to make today count for tomorrow in God's eyes.


In Christ,
Sheila
