As I sit here writing this blog, he is purring on my lap with no idea what is about to happen. Well, so I assume so. It may be that cats make contact with each other in the early stages of life.
You can imagine an older male cat in his last days, warning Jeffrey in a husky, west country, cat voice with one paw on Jeffreys shoulder – ‘Beware Jeffrey! Look what they did to me lad!’
Purring away, Jeffrey has no idea what today holds. Seeing his transporting box / cage may be a hint that those women in blue are drawing near and not being fed supper or breakfast may suggest that today is not an average day in the life of Jeffrey.
As we go through life, we often don’t know what the future holds either. Today and tomorrow could hold the greatest moment of our lives or the complete opposite. They could be an easy day or a difficult day. They could be the day that we see the results of our hard work, or it could simply be another day of striving towards that distant goal.
But like Jeffrey, the future is a mystery and we take each day on it’s own.
As a Christian, I may not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future. I know that whatever happens later today, tomorrow or 7 years down the line, whether the future is good, bad, easy or difficult, or a mix of it all, I am convinced that the God in whom I follow has it all sorted. Of course, being a Christian isn’t about living a problem free life, but about encountering a living God amongst the problems.
Therefore, throughout today and when tomorrow comes, I’m going to trust in a God who knows it all. That will be enough to get me through.
Know this – God wants the best for you. God wants to be part of your today and your tomorrow. God has a plan for your life and seeks to give you life to the full.
Who holds your future? Where are you placing your trust? Is God a part of it?
Now, come on Jeffers…..
