Writer's Block: Carpe Diem

How often do you think about, and plan for, the future? Do you think it ever interferes with your ability to live in the moment?



I am currently trying to figure out what it means to fully live in the moment yet at the same time live in light of eternity.

One day we will wake up on the other side of eternity, and we will be faced with the stark reality that everything we did and said “today” mattered. Really mattered.

Make today count.
 
Your tomorrow depends upon it. 

Encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. -   Hebrews 3:13

"A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel". One of my favorite sayings that I used a LOT when my kids were all at home.
The other favorite was "Life is fragile, handle with prayer". In fact, when I was in my 30's and a close friend got cancer, I made a poster for her bedroom with a butterfly on it and this saying.

It's a tough balance.

Read this tweet by pastor Bill Johnson today.It's another one of those tough balancing acts...

"If God can trust us with mystery, He will trust us with revelation. If we trust God with mystery, we will trust Him in revelation."

So pertinent in our lives!
