Life’s travels take us down many roads. Some roads are paved; others not. Arriving to our destination is the objective. Hills, valleys, and bridges we encounter. To “Cross that bridge when you get there” means to not worry about a possible future problem, but deal with it when and if it occurs. Why worry about issues that don’t exist or haven’t happened? They may not occur. One of our childhood rhymes was, “Weight brought the bridge down.” Stress and worry produce weighty consequences. They can become “heavy” burdens placed on our shoulders; problems that we carry around. Anxieties and sleepless nights follow. Enjoy the moment! Reasonably, prepare for tomorrow; live for today! Deal with problems when they occur. The scriptures in Matthew 6:34 tells us: “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Can I get a witness?
