THE MOMENT

What do you remember as the best moment of your life? Would you have a hard time choosing what was the very best moment? Someone told me life is the joy between the struggles.
Does the sparrow stress out about going to get his worm or does he go get him worm?
My career was planning and organizing. No one said much about the moment.
The emphasis was on earning enough money and investing for the future. Sometimes life becomes a race.
I am not suggesting that don’t plan, organize, save money, or set goals, but we must enjoy the moment.
Each week we say in church, “Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true or right, whatever is pure, lovely or admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.” If the sun is shining, enjoy it. If the storm is coming, see the beauty in the cloud formations.
Sometimes worrying about the what if’s in life, we miss the moment.
Your life can change in a moment for the better or for worse. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. We are told at church not to be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. God is watching. This moment is yours. How do you want to use it?
