Stay in the moment To avoid anxiety NOW is what we have
While we’re in the NOW, Lord help us to be aware Of what DOES matter
Tune our eyes to see And our ears to really hear What is important
Take away our bent To frivolity of life Give us Your wisdom
PHILIPPIANS 4:8 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable— if anything is excellent or praiseworthy— think about such things.
Keeping Philippians 4:8 in your heart and focusing on the positivity of the NOW will make you smile!
Stay in the moment Take notice of little things And you will be blessed!
Tell me, what are you focusing on NOW?? What’s making you smile??
Do you have sunshine in your pocket? Do you have that happy feeling in your body? I dare you to watch this video without smiling!!
Are you familiar with Affirmagise? It’s a WordPress blog whose subtitle is “Affirmagise yourself a happy life!” This week she challenged us with this title, “I love myself enough to challenge myself.” Then she admitted that she has a mindset that is similar to mine. She often tells herself, “If I don’t do it first thing, then it won’t get done!” Whatever IT is, she’s right! I tell myself the same thing… and what does that do? It gives me a cop-out, an excuse to sit here at the computer and keep on blogging because “First thing” has passed – and now it’s already ten in the morning. I didn’t go to my sanctuary at 7:00 AM. I didn’t go to the Fitness Center at 8:00 AM. “Life got in the way,” I often tell myself. You don’t identify with that mindset, do you? Well, Affirmagise says it’s time to affirm a different mind-set. It’s never too late to love yourself enough to DO NOW what you somehow didn’t get done “first thing.” So long, my friends. I’m off to the Fitness Center – – – and I can always go up to my sanctuary for my time of meditation later today. Right? See you in my prayers! 🙂
