I don’t know about you but I am excited about my future and what God has in store for me. I know God’s plans are the best and I literally CAN NOT wait! I am very impatiently waiting to marry my blessing of a boyfriend. I am so stoked to finish college. I am can’t wait to have a family; to become a youth pastor; to own a house. I am just so anxious!
My anxiousness and excitement has made it difficult for me to be happy where I am at now. I am becoming more and more unsatisfied with where my life is.
Lately I have learned to be happy where God has put me here and now. God has put me where I am for a reason, why do I worry? Please don’t think I am in any way, shape, or form saying that we shouldn’t be excited for what is to come. We should, and I am! But we should not loose sight of the here and now; I should not loose sight of now.
As it is said so wonderfully in Kung Fu Panda (great movie!) by the master turtle dude. . . what is his name. . . ?
“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift . . . that’s why it’s called the present.”
May this challenge and help you as it has me.
