Wise Old Owl: Living in the Now
Living in the “now”. How many of us are here but only in body and not in mind. Unfortunately I will have to stick my hand up first, and if I don’t Lyn, my wife, will stick it up for me.

My mind is so often preoccupied with other things, the “what if scenario” what about tomorrow, how will I handle this and how will I handle that. What happens then is that I don’t give the family the attention that they deserve. The ones closest to me suffer, the ones I love dearly, God and the family.

What does the manual of life, the Bible, say about this: Matthew 6:34 MSG

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes

We all realize that each day has its own challenges with some repeating themselves over and over and others being “one day specials”. How do we handle our day? Let’s try sharing it with God and see what happens. What have we got to lose other than our anxiety?

Let’s try to face today’s problems and no more, to treat each day as a self-contained unit. Here are today’s problems let’s meet them with Gods strength. But don’t start tackling tomorrows problems until tomorrow. We do not have tomorrow’s strength yet. We simply have enough for today. We can’t cross a bridge until we reach it.

Let us pray; Please Almighty God help us to live in the now, help us to live and walk in Your presence dealing with today’s challengers with the strength You give us for today. You know our every need even before we do, so please God help us to leave it up to You and You decide what You want us to do. Amen
