one month down…


11 to go.

don’t we think of things that way, or maybe you are bemoaning that fact that January blew by so fast and you didn’t realize it. 

i wrote a few days ago that a person who is living by the Holy Spirit is living in the present, while having objectivity about the past and hope for the future.

i think so often we are just drawn to the past because that’s where something bad happened and we continue to dwell on it. i know in my own life, i tell that story over and over again. guess what, it’s not going to change what happened, but i can do something today to change the ending. i can live for today.

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things will be given to you too. So do not worry about tomorrow. Let tomorrow worry about itself. Living faithfully is a large enough task for today.  Matthew 6:33-34 the Voice

 

so often i’m so stuck in the past or caught up in what may happen that i forget to see what is right in front of me for today. i miss opportunities and people. i plan to achieve the wrong goals and i don’t trust God with my dreams and hopes. 

so don’t miss it today. instead of 1 down 11 to go, or oh my goodness there are only 11 left, let’s reframe to the idea of today is the day, and i won’t waste it.
