Five Minute Friday: Present

It's often said there is no time like the present.  Do we deem this statement to be true?

The present.  Right now.  Not the days of yesterday nor the days to come.

Again and again, we struggle to appreciate our present path because we sadly live for when that thing happens in the future.  That thing for each of us may be different but our discontentment in the now is the same.



I wish we can enjoy our present we've been given to the full.  I wish we could relish in the gift of now. Without the what-if's, without worry, without fear, but in trusting our Creator knows our path.  He knows us. He knows our desires.  He knows our needs.  He is aware of that thing we long for.

May I challenge you to push through dissatisfaction?  Stop expending so much energy waiting for a better day.   But choose to have a grateful heart for your present gift. Today.

Then and only then will there indeed be no time like the present!

  2. I agree with Denise--a lot of us seemed to be thinking alike today. You are right, we need to learn to appreciate and be thankful for our presents....and let go of the yesterdays and tomorrows.
