What Do You Call tomorrow?

If our prayer, "Even so, come Lord Jesus," is answered with Christ coming in the clouds tomorrow morning, his coming is a gift from God. No more tears, suffering, or wondering; no more need for those godly traits like patience and perseverance. Hope will have become reality. Faith will have become sight!
But if Jesus doesn't come in the clouds by tomorrow morning, what do you call tomorrow? Would you call it a gift? At the end of one day, G. K. Chesterson wrote this short poem:

Here dies another day
During which I have had eyes, ears, hands,
And the great world round me;
And with tomorrow begins another.
Why am I allowed two?

Tomorrow, if it comes is a gift. If you've used today, wisely, knowing it was a gift from God, count tomorrow as a bonus. Do it again. If your choices today have been poor, if the time has been taken for granted, treat tomorrow as door number one - a surprise from God, and step through that door with better vision than today. That's Life at Work!
