I don’t know about tomorrow;
I just live from day to day.
I don’t borrow from its sunshine
For its skies may turn to grey.
I don’t worry o’er the future,
For I know what Jesus said.
And today I’ll walk beside Him,
For He knows what is ahead.
Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.
This classic song is called “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” and it was written in 1950 by a traveling preacher named Ara Stanphill. This is a song of trust written during a time of agony and doubt in his life. One day he was feeling sorry for himself as he drove. In the depths of his sadness he began to hum a tune and the next thing he knew he was singing a song. He sang about not knowing what was in the future but knowing that God was with him every step of the way. He rushed to his piano when he arrived at his office and jotted down the words.
As a caregiver to my parents at their old age and being single with no kids, I think about the future a lot. It is so easy to say, “Oh, God will take care of everything! Don’t you worry.” But I am human and it’s just a lot easier to worry.
But God has also given us so many reasons to trust Him. His Word hold true— every day, every time. Walk beside Him and let Him hold your hand.
