Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke

You’ve all seen the bumper sticker, “One Day at a Time”? The slogan is used by persons struggling with alcohol as a reminder that one doesn’t have to stay sober forever—just for today. The key to success is to trust God for the strength to get by today...just one day. No worry about tomorrow until it gets here!

The thread of living “one day at a time’ is woven through the fabric of most major scriptures. God supplied the Israelites with manna daily (Ex 16:4). The Lord’s mercies are new every morning (Lam 3:22-23). Jesus taught His followers to ask for their “daily bread” (Mt 6:11) and to refuse to worry about tomorrow (36). It’s a lesson we seem to learn with difficulty, but one that holds the key to life and peace.

The challenges of getting all of our school projects done, balancing work and co-curricular activities can sometimes seem overwhelming, and we wonder how we will see things through to the end. It is easy to fall into a sense of despair.

You can do it! One day at a time, one step at a time. The Psalmist reminds us that the Lord, “daily loads us with his benefits.” We are never asked to bear tomorrow’s burdens with today’s strength. Keep giving your best effort...one day at a time!
