Tomorrow will be a Better Day

By Susie Teramura

 

Tomorrow will be a better day,

Because it doesn’t depend

on me,

My tomorrow rests

with You.

 

Tomorrow will be a better day,

Because You promise to make ,

All things, even me,

brand new.

 

You take my broken,

And mend it.

You take my empty,

And fill it.

You take my impossible,

And say, possible.

You take the bad,

And make it good,

Turning things bitter

Into things sweet,

Over and over again.

 

The crazy thing is

Nothing- not one thing

Is ever too hard, too much,

too old, too gone, too dead

For You,

Stepped out of the grave

Gave life

To my dead heart

And told me,

That my story is not over

That it has only just begun,

And that actually

the best, most beautiful part

is still yet to come.

 

So no matter what lies ahead

or what I have been through,

Tomorrow will be a better day

Because it doesn’t depend on me

My tomorrow rests with You.

 

Lamentations 3: 20-24

 “My soul is downcast within meYet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

Genesis 18:14

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

  1. As always, Susie, your poem fills me with hope. Nothing is too hard or dead for Him, nothing is impossible with Him, and our tomorrows will be better because He’s got us. Thank you! Are you and your family recovered from the virus and your little one from pneumonia? I hope so! You must be all worn out. May He give you special strength! Blessings and hugs to you all!

    1. HiTrudi! I am so thankful too for a never giving up God whose love for us never changes and never ends! We are slowly recovering- The girls are mostly better. I have it now 😦 and I am so tired!! I even got my days mixed up and posted today thinking it was Wednesday! These last two weeks have been a blur! Thanks for you kindness and love! It always is a lift in my day Trudi! You are a blessing to me! xo

  2. Susie,
    I feel as if your words were written just for me. I know our stories are far from over but sometimes it’s hard to muster the faith to believe it! Somehow, someway, his words drip life into the weak parts of my life and I feel hopeful and cheerful yet again. I wish I were more even-keeled, but I’m so grateful for your sensitive soul that feels these things too, and I know the threads of your story were meant to intertwine with mine! xo

    1. Hi Valerie! I agree -I struggle to believe it too!!! and often write these words to tell myself things I am having trouble believing deep in my soul! It helps me to write it down and speak it back to my heart I guess. I am grateful to have kindred hearts and sisters in Christ like you to journey this path of faith with! What a gift! truly a treasure:)!! Thanks for sharing your heart and your beautiful words with me! xo
