Today's troubles are enough for today


Graduation has begun in Webster County. Those graduates will hear thousands of pieces of advice ranging from "Hard work pays off," "Good Luck," and many others. Well, for this article, consider me the thousandth and one piece of advice you will hear.

In today's world, it is so easy to get wrapped up in anxiety and worry about tomorrow or what comes next and after that. All too many of us are already stressing out about the next three months, and it's only the middle of May. While yes, it is good to think and plan, that should not be the only thing on your mind. You must remember that you are in the present, not the future, so what are you doing now?

There are many ways to say this advice, but my favorite comes from a holy piece of doctrine.

"So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today." Matthew 6: 34.

This advice is easier said than done. Trust me, I'm in my 30s and still get caught up in thinking days ahead. But I encourage everyone, not just graduates, to take that advice to heart. "Do not worry about tomorrow. Today's trouble is enough."

If you feel overwhelmed, you probably are, and you need to stop, take a deep breath, and remember, "Today's troubles are enough for today."

Everything is going to work out for the best. You only need to be patient, focus on the day at hand, and watch what the future will unfold.
