Have you ever really thought about what living in the moment means?
I did. This past weekend. 🙂
A moment is a period of time, usually brief, usually referring to the present.
Often times I get so caught up regretting the past and dreaming of the future that I forget I can do nothing about either. I let it overwhelm me. All I can do is live in the moment. The now.
I spent one evening living in the moment. Not giving the past or future a second thought. I simply enjoyed the moment. The company. The food. The conversation. It is so liberating! It frees up all the time we spend worrying, plotting out the things we cannot control. We all should do it every day.
Don’t get me wrong. We all have certain responsibilities in this life. We have to pay our bills and our taxes. Schedule daily appointments weeks out on our calendars. Look to the future to some degree. But we can learn to live so fully in the moment as to give it our all. Full attention. The benefits are incredible! For one thing you will improve the quality of your time. Not to mention reduce your stress level greatly!
We all need to stop waiting for the weekend. For warmer weather.To fall in love. To have more money. We need to stop waiting and start living. We need to make the most of the moment we are living in now. There we will find our true happiness. I urge each of you to be content in the moment. No one knows what the future holds.
I encourage each of us to live in the moment. Live each moment to its fullest. Stop waiting for the perfect time to accomplish something for it may just pass us by.
Take the kingdom of God. If you are waiting to sew your wild oats. To get old. To whatever the excuse may be before you give your life to Jesus, you may just be sadly mistaken. It’s a matter of life or death. Take a moment today and reconsider. I promise you it will be the best moment you ever spent.
Jesus said, No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God’s kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day.
Love and laughter,
