Often we find ourselves thinking about the future or obsessing over the past. When we do this, we rob ourselves of the current moment. We deny ourselves the ability to be in the present, enjoying God’s magnificent gifts and creations. If we are to be of maximum use to God and our fellows, then we must be present so we don’t miss an opportunity to be useful.
Today, I will allow myself to be present at every moment so I do not miss the gifts God gives me.
