Live life in the moment

Matthew 6:25-34 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

I'm almost tempted to not write anything and just meditate on this passage. It says so much! I had a long conversation with an awesome woman of God and so many things that were said opened my eyes. See I have this unfortunate habit of always trying to look ahead. To the future. Where will I be? What will I be doing? Why am I not where I think I should be? When will I get to where I think I should be? On and on and on. Well in our conversation, I was told to live life in the moment. Don't worry about where you think you are supposed to be. Live, love, laugh.....especially laugh.....I've been told by too many people, that I am too serious. Well, the love is there, but how effective can it be without the living and laughing? 

 There was alot of things said. Alot of things she saw in me without me even having to say it. But after all was said and done, the most powerful thing I grabbed a hold of, was live life in the moment. And as I was driving home, the above scripture came to mind. I don't need to worry about my future. Actually I don't need to worry about alot of things according to His word. He knows what I need, He knows what I want, and what I need to do is to continue to focus on Him and all else will fall into place. "Live life in the moment".......
Hmmmmm.....thank you Jesus!

God Bless!
