Each moment is all we need— as in, whatever exact, specific moment you are in at this current moment, stay there.
This is a discipline, isn’t it? To believe and act upon the truth that the God of all timing gives us each moment with divine sovereignty and wisdom knowing it is enough for where we are. He isn’t thinking to Himself, “Ahhhh! If only there was more time!”, or “Man, if she had not of wasted so many moments before now”…oh no my friend! He takes wherever we are, with whatever is in our hands, with whomever is in our circle, and whatever is on our horizon, and He says— “Hey, be happy in THIS moment. Rejoice in your CURRENT circumstance! This is all you need.”
We do not need the next puzzle piece before we are content with what we are looking at now.
We can be fully present in this moment, no matter what the answer is to our biggest prayer, and whether that answer will come to pass.
We can rest, take deep breaths, and fully trust that the Father of time takes all our “wasted moments”, and He is using them to refine us in this very moment.
This moment. Will you arrest yourself when you start to dabble into tomorrow or concern your mind with yesterday and remember that where you are— exactly there— to be happy there?
Will you smile there?
Show gratitude there?
Because something happens when we choose to be happy in our present circumstance, a freedom comes. We are reminded that because the moments are all gifts, we must diligently open each one. For when we do? We see that it really is enough.
“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.” -Ecclesiastes 5:18-20, MSG
Have the best Thursday!
