As I write these words, the present moment of my life has already been added to the archives of my past; and I have moved into the future that was less than a split-second ago. Life in the right now is sandwiched between the past and the future. It takes only a split second for my experience to be modified by what I think, do, and say.
It is awesome that God, in all of His unlimited majestic power, has allowed me to live in the moment, leave the experience of the past, and suddenly find myself in the future that was unknown a split second ago. The present is recorded for my archives, and the future is hope for God’s privileged people.
Every day that God allows me to live on this planet becomes a living testimony of His love for me, but how I choose to live this life will be a reflection of my love for Him. How many things are there in this world that I can do to show my love for Him? Let me count the ways (to myself). The list is too long.
The intent of sharing my thoughts at this moment is to help someone get through the day (or night), and through difficult times in life–and with thanks, emerge through it all with a testimony that will glorify God. And if depression is the word for today, I must remember that the sun will rise tomorrow and will allow just a little time to experience the gift of life that God gave me. I will continue to do my best to place God first in my life, and all other people and things will be prioritized after Him.
