Be Present

We wish for God to be present in our lives.But are we present? Are we living in the moment, never wishing for the future or regretting the past?

If we are not present in our lives and seeing the people before us, how can we expect to see God who may be right before us? We forget that He is there working through those who come into our lives – even if it is for but a moment. He is in the person who holds the door open for you; He is in the person who who helps you through a difficult moment; He is in the person who smiles at you during peak time in the subway.

Be present in the moment. Be present and you will see God. Be present and you will experience His love and support.

  1. This is the first post that I haven’t incorporated scripture in but know that God showed up in reading your post and reminder that not only will we be in the present when we slow down to be in the moment. It is only then that we are able to see God! Thank you!

  2. What a great question here: “If we are not present in our lives and seeing the people before us, how can we expect to see God who may be right before us?” Yes! Being present requires a humility – and it’s exactly what we need to bring to our relationship with God. Great post!
