Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start. Each day a brand new opportunity to get right what we missed yesterday. A new chance to draw close to the Lord. A new chance to draw near to our loved ones. A new chance to live in the moment totally giving ourselves to the joy of each moment.
That is what I am going to do today. I am going to intentionally focus on the very moment before my eyes. I am going to exercise my ability to take hold of every thought. Instead of thinking about all I have to do later, or tomorrow, or next week, I will focus on each moment. My agenda for today is jam packed, but instead of focusing on the whole day full of mountainous to-dos, I will choose to be present in each moment right in front of me. I will play with my children, and purpose not to be making any mental lists or focusing on what I have to accomplish when I get up from playing with them.
I will allow myself to be in each moment. Just THAT moment. That’s the only moment I am guaranteed, and will cherish it.
I am choosing to choose joy today.
I am intentionally going to spend time playing, laughing, and being silly with my little people.
I will get the important tasks done, and when I am doing them, I will give them my focus. But that’s all they get. The todo list won’t control my thoughts all day.
Moment by moment, I will live today.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to cherish every moment like a precious gift. Help us to not miss the gift of the present, dwelling on the past or the worries of tomorrow. Give us peace and joy and rest in each moment.
In Jesus’s name, Amen
