This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 6:34 (NIV)
Today, I am thinking about being in between seasons.
I live in Chicago, and this is the time of year that feels as though we are living in between winter and summer. One day, all the signs will indicate that summer is right around the corner: the skies are blue and the temperature hovers around 60 or 70 degrees. Yet, the next day will be gloomy and barely 40 degrees.
Summer is so close that I can almost smell it in the air, but it’s still not here. It makes me wonder how much more of this I can take.
The same phenomenon presents itself in the seasons of my personal life. When I am not absolutely content with the present, I consistently struggle with staying in it. I’m often preoccupied with new beginnings and a new season and a new door opening. It ends up being almost impossible to appreciate what the current season can offer me.
As we know, each moment creates the next. If my current moment is filled with a lot of anxiety and anticipation, I’m only continuing to create more of that.
Over time, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of finding joy in the present. Sometimes, we all need to be reminded of that.
The next time we have one foot in today and the other in tomorrow, let us cling to these words: “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 (NIV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, savor the moment, knowing that tomorrow is on its way.
