Living In the Now

This week at Small Group, we talked briefly about living in the now. I mentioned how I tend to look forward to the future and how my mind is constantly dreaming up a life of happiness. I don't necessarily plan my future but I definitely have a picture in my head. Not good. Haha. That's just asking for disappointment.

Bethany reminded me that God wants us to fully embrace NOW, the season that we are in. Life changes so fast that we shouldn't be doing anything but living in the moment and appreciating what we have. That time that I look forward to in the future will come. But four years ago, I was looking forward to today so why am I still waiting on something when it's right in front of me? That conversation just hit me hard and I'm so very thankful I have such beautiful friends with beautiful hearts who help me understand a little more about life, God, and myself each day.
