Lately, I’ve been questioning a lot of things, wondering how things will turn out; a lot of “what ifs” and “what wills” have been asked and pondered. As I was going through some old emails the other day, I came across one a friend had forwarded to me. It was a devotional entitled, “Give Me All Your Tomorrows”. It was about how God had told Abraham to pick up and leave all he knew, to go where he knew not. In the devotional, Hebrews 11:8 was quoted and even though it was there, I decided to go look it up anyway. How could I have forgotten that Hebrews 11 is the “by faith” chapter? Looking at it, all I saw was verse after verse saying, “By faith…By faith…By faith…”
I like to know how things will turn out, or at least have an idea. When it comes to my life, I like to say, “Ok, I am going to do this, which means this will happen, and it will happen then.” I’m sure God gets a kick out of that at times and says, “Oh really?” But, I am learning to say, “Ok, I want and hope for this, I don’t know if it will, but I trust You and I know You have a plan, and You will show me in time.”
In the devotional, there was an idea of what God told Abraham, but instead of Abraham’s name, I put mine in and…I can’t describe the feeling that swept over me.
“From this day on, I want you to give me all your tomorrows. You’re to live the rest of your life putting your future into my hands, one day at a time. I’m asking you to commit your life to a promise that I am making to you, Katie. If you will commit to this, I will bless you, guide you, and lead you to a place you never imagined.”
Who better to give your tomorrows to than the Creator of all? The Alpha and Omega? The one who holds time in His hands? The one who knows every hair on your head, every cell in your body? Give Him all your tomorrows.
