Don’t worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will bring its own worries.
Today’s trouble is enough for today
(Matthew 6:34; NLT).
1. May I live one day at a time,
And forgive one hurt at a time.
2. May I learn one rule at a time,
And discern one truth at a time.
3. May I meet one test at a time,
And defeat one sin at a time.
4. May I face one fear at a time,
And embrace one hope at a time.
5. May I grieve one loss at a time,
And receive one grace at a time.
6. May I sow one seed at a time,
And go on, one step at a time.
