Being able to focus on the present is critical.
The devil loves to get us to live our lives in the past and future so we miss out on the beauty of the present.
God is with us in the present.
He does His best work through us when we are present and living in the moment…I write from experience.
Do you struggle with staying in the present?
What is distracting you?
Turn it over to God.
Ecclesiastes 5:18-20, MSG- After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live.
Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV- Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
