Today I Will….

Have you ever come to this place of contentment.  This place where you forget where you came from because your are so focused on where you are going?  What’s worse is that you should be focusing on the now anyway!  What we do today shapes our future. Today’s actions become tomorrows success or failure.  

Here lately I’ve been looking a bit too much forward.  I know what I want. I know that if it is God’s Will for me, it WILL happen. I know that if it doesn’t happen, God has something better for me is store.  So why am I so worried about tomorrow, today?

When I think back about where I was a few years ago.. I’ve come a long way.  11 years ago, holy cow, that was a person I don’t even recognize now.  It was an empty shell for a lost soul. Empty until a Savior picked me up and filled me with His Spirit. Emily before Christ would shock most of you. 

I don’t understand how I so easily forget all the amazing things God has done for me in the past.  He delivered me from my worst nightmares, carried me through pain and loss even before I knew Him, and He is still holding on just as strong as I type this.  When I do look back through my eyes I see pain.  I don’t see the good, just the bad.  When I look back in a positive light, I see the blessings far outweigh the bad.  I just can’t shake the bad sometimes.

Today I plan of just being thankful for the here and now.  Thankful for a family who loves me, thankful for my crazy messy house, thankful for the children who are already covered in dirt by 10am. I’m going to be thankful for all of that and more!  No looking forward to tomorrow, no looking back at the past.  I’m simply going to be thankful for each minute of today and find the blessings in the small things.

Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past….

Praying you find your pearls in the desert.
