I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.

Today the word prompt is … Tomorrow.

One word and my thoughts began to roll. One word was all it took to uncover what lay hidden in my heart.


Even though I had thought I was not a worrier, I am.

I worry about tomorrow.

I lay in bed and fall asleep worrying about what the next day will bring. Will I be able to handle it? Will tomorrow be better than today? Will tomorrow be more difficult?

I cannot even count the number of times I sat in church and our pastor had us recite, motions and all  … that neither height nor depth, nor anything at will ever be able to separate us from the love of God. I thought I was convinced and yet this morning seeing the word prompt I realized I had one doubt …


I thought tomorrow might be able to separate me from Him.

And the words came flooding back ….

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, nor angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39, NLT)

Tomorrow – you are no longer the boss of me.
