Day by Day


Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will have its own worries. The troubles we have in a day are enough for one day.
– Jesus, Matthew 6: 34 (New Living Translation, NLT)
I am once again learning to live by this wisdom. I’ve got to take it day by day. I cannot live my whole life in one day. I know that I will fail my Lord on some of the days of my life. I cannot muster up enough faith to live a complete life of wisdom; but I can live for Jesus today. Then, I can live for Jesus in the next day that is called “today.” Tomorrow is not yet here; but, today, today, today, and today, I can live for Jesus.
Day By Day
By DC Talk; Welcome to the Freak Show: DC Talk Live in Concert

Bottom of Form
I live a simple life, I take a day at a time
I spend my mornings with God before I hit the grind
The subtleties of darkness never cease to amaze
As a physical world creates a spiritual haze

Blinded by distractions
Lost in matterless affairs
Reaching through the darkness
Trusting You will meet me there

Day by day
(Day by day)
Day by day
(Day by day)
Oh dear Lord, three things I pray
(One, two, three)
To see Thee more clearly
(Day by day)
To love Thee more dearly
(Day by day)
To follow Thee more nearly
(I got to take it)
Day by day

You cruise around the corner
You watch your back
You sweep your feet down alley streets
Sometimes you creep, I never see you coming
Monday, man you're on my back
Like a knapsack strapped with my heavy burden

No, You cannot condemn me
I won't buy your bag of goods
You've got nothing for me anyway
That's why I pray 

Day by day
(Day by day)
Day by day
(Day by day)
Oh dear Lord, three things I pray
(One, two, three)
To see Thee more clearly
(Day by day)
To love Thee more dearly
(Day by day)
To follow Thee more nearly
(I got to take it)
Day by day
