What is so bad about right now?
Think about it for a moment.
It feels like our whole lives are geared towards what is coming, whats next.
I'll relax next summer.
I'll connect with my family next week.
I'll apply to the next job opportunity.
Its easy to get locked into a headspace where we are just waiting for whats next, looking past whats right now.
Jesus talked about this.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
My encouragement for you right now, is to stay grounded in the present.
Embrace the present.
Embrace the opportunities that you have.
Embrace the people that you are around.
Embrace opportunities for rest.
The best way to prepare for the future is to be active in the present.
My challenge this week is that we pause for a moment, that we take a look at our surroundings and we are thankful. Thankful for another opportunity to tackle the troubles of right now.
So what is so bad about right now?
I don't know the answer to that, but I do have a solution. Take your right now and make a decision to step ahead including Jesus in wherever that journey is going
Tomorrow will always have its trouble, so be thankful that right now we have Jesus.
