O&A: I immediately am thinking how we're not to worry about tomorrow, for today has enough worry of its own. Years ago, my husband and I began to say, "If Abba wills/desires/purposes, we will do ___ tomorrow/whatever date in the future." Somewhere along the way, I stopped stating it as such all the time. I'm thankful for this reminder. Without Him, I have nothing, can do nothing, and am nothing... but a vapor in the wind.
This makes me think of my oil diffuser. I put the water in, make my little scent blend, and turn it on. For hours, it will diffuse the oils into the air at set intervals. If you see it diffusing, you will see the wisps of vapor coming out, but it doesn't last. Of course you can still smell the evidence of the oils for hours, but later on, that's not even there, either. Our lives have the potential to be nothing more than that, if we boast in ourselves, yet can have incredible impact when we trust Adonai with the purpose of our life and do only as He wills/desires/sets the purpose.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 "Thus says Adonai/the L-RD, Don't let the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, don't let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he has understanding, and knows me, that I am Adonai/the L-RD who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness, in the eretz: for in these things I delight, says Adonai/the L-RD."
