The Moments

Heya :)

Life has an interesting knack of going on, whether you want it to or not. I find that it is actually super easy to forget about the moment when thinking about the future. This doesn't have to be the far off future, but does wishing away the week so that it would be the weekend, and as soon as Sunday is half gone you 'just can't wait till friday' sound familiar? :) There is so much to live for during the week as well! Someone once said that 'Each and every moment has the potential to be the best moment of your life.' So why are you wasting this moment waiting for the next moment, when this moment could be so much better than that? if that makes sense... My mom was a nurse when she was younger, and she had an elderly patient who had been a judge. He had been so busy with his work he hadn't had time for anything else. He had no family, no relatives, and no friends. His work consumed him and as he acquired more and more money he thought that once he retired then he would travel and do all the things that people do for fun and leisure. However, later on in his life he developed a migraine, and it never really went away. He had severe headaches for the rest of his life, and once he was retired, he wasn't able to read, watch TV or travel. He had spent his whole life waiting for his future only to find his future a lonely and painful place to be. I bet he wished he could go back and live his life again, so he could have done something worthwhile with it.

" Now listen, you who say, 'today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say 'If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that" James 4.13-15

Heectic hey? We aren't in control of our lives. Its all up to God.
I think since God gave me my life, what option do I have but living it for him? I mean its the least I could do..

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
