In the Present

"I guide you continually,
so you can relax
and enjoy My Presence in the present."
(Jesus Calling)

Live today - not yesterday, or tomorrow. How I need to remember this. Regrets from the past, or worries about tomorrow occupy my mind too often. Today is the day that matters. 

"Concentrate on staying close to Me ...
pray about everything;
then leave outcomes up to Me ...
Take a deep breath, 
and dive into the depths of absolute trust in Me."
(Jesus Calling)

Lord, help me to learn more about living in the present - enjoying Your Presence in the present.

"Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to You
and wait expectantly."
(Psalm 5:3)

And an invitation to come along with me as I am schooled deeper in prayer.
Beginning the first week of September, on Wednesdays ...
