A friend and I were talking the other day about time – how we sometimes plan an event months in advance, look forward to it, and then all of a sudden it’s here – it really does come to pass. Specifically, in this case, I had purchased tickets to Jim Brickman’s holiday concert several months back, received the tickets within a week, and slipped them into a folder in my desk. It seemed eons away. Then, last Sunday afternoon, there we were – living in the moment of something planned for months. What good advice that is – to live in the moment.
I may not always do this, but tomorrow I am going to purpose in my heart to live in the moment. I’m going to shut out every worry and fear for the future. I’m going to forget about the work left at the office (it will wait or someone else can handle). And I am NOT going to ponder any regrets or concerns of the past. This one day, I am going to be grateful. This one day, I am going to celebrate. This one day is here, and I will rejoice with my family and friends, for now the time has come.
One of my favorite quotations will be lived out tomorrow “… and in the fullness of time, it came to pass …”
God was willing and faithful. Just look what the Lord has done!
