Live in the Present

People miss out on so many blessings because they haven’t learned to live each day to the fullest! If they are depressed, they are usually ‘living in the past’ - moping about “the good ole days,” and how wonderful it used to be. There are those who find change difficult and so they wallow in the pit of depression, not knowing how to climb out. Then there are those who are on the opposite end of the spectrum who ‘live in the future.’ They dream and plan for the day when all the wonderful things will happen to them so that ‘then’ they will finally be happy! They are usually anxious, worried and live in a constant state of stress! But as Christians, we know God wants us to plan for the future, but live in the present, making the most of each day, as if it were our last! We can only do this by trusting our past, present and future to Jesus! He knows the end from the beginning and what is best for us! He will never let us down! As long as we are holding God’s hand, we don’t have to worry about tomorrow, or ten years down the road! Nor do we need to be all sad and depressed because life isn’t like it used to be! Every day with Jesus - is sweeter than the day before! Text: Philippians 4:11-13, Isaiah 41:10, Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 11:1
