Live in the Moment

https://www.skinnerinc.com
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

             A friend preached a sermon about how we are to live in the moment. She gave me a lot to think about. I sometimes relive the past and dream about the future. However, I learned that God holds the future.
            Another friend and I were talking about those who want to know the future of their lives. She told me she didn’t want to know what lay ahead for her because she would be afraid. She is a Christian and knows God has all things in His hands.
            My second friend made a wise decision because she has had an extended illness that keeps her housebound. Her usual trips out of the home she shares with her husband and daughter are when the ambulance takes her to the hospital three times a week for treatment. These treatments have caused more issues that affect her health.

            Because of my one friend’s sermon and my other friend’s experience, I have chosen not to worry about the future and live each day as best I can. My suggestion to anyone bothered about the past or concerned about the future to learn to live in the present.

             This is a Five Minute Friday entry. The prompt was FUTURE.

  2. Excellent advice, this. We only have this moment, don't we? If we live in the past or the future, we waste what we can do now that might make a positive difference.
