Be Mindful of the Present

It is so easy to get lost in regrets of the past or anxieties about the future. But this is a breeding ground for worry and it is obviously not where God wants us to be. He wants us to relish in the joy, peace, and meaning of the present. 

Stay mindful of all the blessings you are experiencing in current time. Take some moments throughout your day to breathe in deeply and notice the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touches all around you. Stay focused on those that are positive and tell God everything you are observing and appreciating. 

There is a famous saying, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift that’s why it’s called the present.” Be mindful of the present that God has gifted you with on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful, and thankful.  Colossians 4:2
