Each Moment is all we need.

Each Moment is all we need.

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!

Short and sweet— whatcha been doing this morning? Have you developed a healthy routine when your mind wakes up and your feet hit the floor that will ensure a peaceful and productive rest of your day? I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

Speak them out loud.
Speak them out loud.

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
