THIS SERIES: CELEBRATE THE PRESENT
Be happy in the moment, that's enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.
There are ways of focusing on the future which can negatively affect the present.
One is to focus on the future as the time when life will start, when things will be rosy and we will be happy. This attitude can centre on big occasions: ‘when we leave university’, or ‘when we retire’, or the smaller stuff of life: ‘after we’ve finished decorating’, or ‘after Christmas is done and dusted’.
Not only does an unhealthy focus on the future rob us of happiness and productiveness in the present, but also it also effects how that future pans out. The choices and decisions we make today provide the foundations for tomorrow. What we learn of ourselves, and God right now; the character development and experiences that this moment provides, are the building blocks towards the unique destiny God has planned for us.
One day you will live in the fruit of this moment...
