Here And Now…

I’m glad to be here and now.HANDN

I’m thankful God loves me and has watched over me throughout my life, that He’s helped me to get here, and that He’s secured my future. I’m thankful for my parents who at this time in my life are a big factor in my enjoyment of such.  I’m thankful for the people who talk to me as well as listen; they add immeasurably to my being.

I’m recognizing that in trusting God’s secured my future, I am better served to spend my time focusing on now. I of course don’t need God any less now, but now is all I have. God’s had it all from the beginning.  Just in handling now, I need His help. I’m limited, but fortunately He is not.

My small life is most important to those who love me, to those I am able to bless, and of course to those who God will bring into those positions. That’s becoming enough for me, not that I’m without an ego that sometimes prompts me to think myself more important.  I’m not more important than that, but that’s important.

I’ve leaned that I can’t control the future or even will myself into one of my own making. What little I’ve gotten from such trial and error is small in comparison to the moments lost.  My best was never within or birthed from my ambition, but in moments experienced with those who mattered.

Today I’m not really a threat to anyone’s future or even their current prosperity. I cannot instruct anyone on how to achieve more than I’ve achieved, nor should I try. What little I can give to others is a blessing for me to give. My hope is that it’s a blessing to receive.

To be alive, to love these people in my life, to be able to option daily my current existence is such a gift. I’m glad to be here. This alone is enough. Every blessing beyond and or created from it is proof that God loves us even more than we realize.

    Wonderful, as always, to know I am not alone in this walk to become more of HIIM and less of me. Thanks Paul.
