I love my kitchen window. There is always something interesting going on whenever I walk by. This causes me to stop, stand in front of it and gaze out in that moment. Maybe it’s a ‘Present Moment Portal’, and not just a window.
To enjoy the present moment, you need to place yourself in the space to enjoy it. Today, I sat in my front porch swing to enjoy that early morning moment.
Do you ever worry about things that haven’t even happened yet?
I read an article the other day by a man who teaches about the present moment, and he caught himself multitasking. Bringing way too much into his moment. He made a vow to go back to single tasking and enjoying each task.
Awareness is the first step to change.
Toward the end of the month, I tend to become worried about the house payment for the upcoming month. I think this is from going through foreclosure on a home years ago. There is still that lingering uncertainty.
Looking at the facts, there is nothing to worry about. Have I always made the house payment? Yes. Does it place me in a financial hardship? No. Am I grateful for my home and for God providing such a beautiful place to live? Yes.
“Trust me and refuse to worry,” were the first words in my devotional this morning.
“Keep your mind in the present moment. If you use your magnificent mind to worry, you cloak yourself in dark unbelief. However, when the hope of heaven fills your thoughts, the Light of My Presence envelops you.” Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.
That is God’s plan for today, which sounds a lot more refreshing than mine from yesterday. That plan, is a good plan.
