2.25.2022 – Living in the Moment-by-Moment with Him

As I’m sitting here at the table this morning, I’m listening to the cheeping sound of around 50-60 baby chicks that are currently in our living room…

It’s a sweet little sound. 🐣

There’s a lot going on in our world right now.

Major things have shifted and changed again.

Things are always changing, of course,

but choices have been made that have unleashed new consequences…

…cause and effect.

I think there are many who haven’t the words right now,

that can express

the heaviness the world is feeling

from all that is happening in our world.

I’ve had trouble finding the words…

But this morning I sat down before the Lord,

and just took a deep breath in,

and a deep sigh out…

And I knew that He heard my heart. 💝

I’m thankful for a Heavenly Father

who knows my heart

even when I haven’t the words to express

even when I’m not able to process just yet…

He knows.

You see, the thing is…

even with all that is happening in the world

even with all of the things that feel so out of our hands

the truth is,

there is a lot that is in our hands.

There is power in prayer,

and that

is in our hands.

But also, there is this…

I can focus on doing the thing that is before me to do,

I can choose to be present in whatever moment God has given me.

My task at hand

for right now.

It’s important.

It’s needed.

Spring is here.

Anxiety wants to keep me from LIVING in my assignments right now, by distracting me with “what ifs”, and paralyzing me in fear.

But I’ll find joy and peace in being in,

and in “living in”

that moment-by-moment with Him.

“God, what’s on Your heart for me to do, right here, right now… in this life that You have created for me to live, and in this moment in time that You have planted me in?”

Thank You, Father. 💝

114 You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. 115 Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God! 116 Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. 117 Uphold me, and I will be delivered; I will always have regard for your decrees.”—Psalm 119:114-117
