The Simple Life

Do Today; Kesho Itajipanga


Therefore I tell you,

do not worry about your life,

what you will eat or drink;

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Do not worry

about your body,

what you will wear.

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Is not life more than food,

the body more than clothes?

The world more that homes?

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Look at the birds of the air;

they do not sow or reap

store away in barns,

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. 

Are you not much more valuable?

Can worrying add a single hour to your life?

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

And why do you worry about clothes?

See how the flowers of the field grow.

They do not labor or spin. 

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Not even Solomon in all his splendor 

With all his majesty and wealth

was dressed like one of these

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,

which is here today

tomorrow is thrown into the fire,

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Do not worry, saying,

‘What shall we eat?’

‘What shall we drink?’

‘What shall we wear?’

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

He neither sleeps nor slumbers

He prepares a provision for you

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,

for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Rather seek first His kingdom 

His righteousness,

His will and way

His perfect plan

Do today

Kesho itajipanga

==============

Translation: Kesho itajipanga – Tomorrow will take care of itself
