This is where we live.
We forget to live in the here and now.
We are often living for a tomorrow that is a product of our longing or imagination.
We buy into the grass is greener on the other side mentality. Because certainly life will be better when...
Today turns into a place of discontent and we are too focused on what we think will be better in the days ahead.
I think I have some good advice.
Embrace the season you are in. Embrace where you are today.
I have said this to others and turn around and forget to do it myself. When I follow my own advice though, I will look harder to see the beauty in each new day. When I follow my own advice, I also find that I am okay in the moment and am reminded that life is a gift of days - given one at a time.
I need to keep both feet planted in today while it is today and not start skipping ahead to tomorrow. If I am skipping ahead to tomorrow, I will then literally skip today. That would be a shame.
What happens if we don’t give today the attention it is due? I think we end up devaluing it and that turns into a wasted day. Now I know when it comes down to it, I don’t want to waste my days.
In my heart it is my desire to walk my days with the Lord. I need to do that one day at a time while living in the moment to moment of each day.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
