Today’s trouble is enough for today

Today’s trouble is enough for today

Recently, I wrote a short reflection on Facebook. At the end of a busy day, I was tired. It wasn’t the kind of fatigue that comes from tension or an injury, but the kind you feel after a day when you’ve given the best of yourself.

A phrase from the Gospel bubbled up in my heart: “Today’s trouble is enough for today” (Mt 6:34). Sometimes I worry about tomorrow … but not that time. I had worked really hard.

Despite all the things that happen in life, my heart remains devoted to the Gospel and to my sisters and brothers. … I hope that at the end of my life, I can say that I did my best. Quite frankly, I desire nothing more. Everything starts with “Today’s trouble is enough for today.” In love.
