One of God's aged saints fell and broke her hip. As she lay discouraged in a hospital bed, she asked the doctor, "How long will I have to stay here?" The wise doctor replied, "Just one day at a time!"

God deals with His children on a day-by-day basis: "Give us this day our daily bread" (Matt. 6:11).

Tomorrow is not mine;

Just for today, I ask Thee

For light and health divine;

Tomorrow's care I must not bear;

The future is all Thine
