I’ve been working on memorizing a few passages of Scripture, one of them being Proverbs 31:25 –
I am clothed with strength and dignity. I laugh without fear of the future. (NLT; personalized and emphasis mine)
That’s what I want. I want to be in the moment and enjoy it without any fear of the near or distant future.
Matthew Poole, on this verse:
She lives in constant tranquility of mind, and a confident and cheerful expectation of all future events, how calamitous soever, partly because she hath laid in provisions of a rainy day, and chiefly because she hath the comfortable remembrance of a well-spent life, and, which follows thereupon, a just confidence in God’s gracious providence and promises made to such persons.
A just confidence in God’s gracious providence.
