I have $24 dollars of Grace per day
I spent 1 of those dollars on thoughts for tomorrow
I have $23 dollars of Grace to save
Or tomorrows Grace I’d have to borrow.
I spent $2 of Grace on thinking of bills I can’t pay
And $3 on looking into apartments for rent
I have $18 for the rest of the day
So I think my Grace isn’t really well spent.
The nurse called and my kid got the flu
I had to leave work early in a hurry
I spent $7 on Grace to get me through
And to think it’s only 12:30.
My husband gets home with some bad news
My anxiety is at peak and it’s 4:07
He got laid off and handed in his tools
I checked my wallet for grace and all i had was 11.
I didn’t want to get into it
I just wanted us to enjoy our meal
If we started talking, my account will dip
It was worry that I tried not to feel.
For every time I worry, my account goes low
Because there is only enough Grace for 1 day
See, tomorrow has enough problems of its own.
Yet I keep spending Grace the wrong way.
If I keep thinking and worrying of my future
My future that I cannot see
I waste today’s Grace a lot sooner,
then I run out of it before 3.
It’s not God’s design for us to be anxious
About what’s ahead or behind
We should live and love who’s around us
In the very moment we’re living our lives
$24 of Grace a day to spend on the day we’re in
I’m saying He’s given sufficiently when our eyes are always on Him
