Being Present in the Present.

Stay on the path God has put you on.

Be present.

Stay focused on the main goal of this season.

Do what God has given you to do where you are.

Don’t worry about what others are doing or getting.

Don’t wonder where others are going or what others are giving.

Focus on what is important today.

Focus on why you are doing it.

“Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, ‘I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,’ we can boldly quote, God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?”  Hebrews 13:5-6 MSG

Jesus has promised to be with you and is ready to help you in every situation that presents itself to you.

Ask God for help and focus on being present in the present.  

Don’t Let the Past Blind You From Seeing the Future 

  

The best way to miss the new thing that God wants to do in your life is to be obessed with what happened in the past.

A past relationship.
A past failure.
A past mistake. 

A moment that changed the direction of your life. You can’t go back and change it but you can spend all your time thinking about what might have happened if you could have.

It doesn’t even have to be something bad that happened- obsessing over the “good ole days” is just as distracting. When you spend all your energy thinking about how good it used to be, you will never see how good it could be now. 

“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:16-21‬ ‭MSG‬‬

God wants to do a new thing in your life. One that is transforming and redeeming. One that you can only experience if you are determined to be present. Determined to be alert to hope. 

In Christ, you have a brand new life. It won’t look like anything you have experienced before. 

Don’t let the past blind you from seeing the future God wants you to begin living now. 

Let go of the past and give yourself permission to be excited about God is doing now.

Let the adventures begin!
