God Never Blinks

I'm reading a book called "God Never Blinks" by Regina Brett. It's fabulous and a book of wonderous thoughts to ponder, 50 of them, about life.  The chapters are short and pointed.  One of the chapters is called You Can get through Anything Life Hands you if You Stay Put in the Day You Are in and Don't Jump Ahead.

She quotes another author by saying..."Andre Dubus once wrote in "A Father's Story": "It is not hard to live through a day, if you can live through a moment. What creates despair is the imagination, which pretends there is a future, and insists on predicting millions of moments, thousands of days, and so drains you that you cannot live the moment at hand."

She continues, "I no longer squander today being afraid of tomorrow or wallowing in guilt or resentments of the past. God isn't present in the past or future. The great I Am is in the present moment. When I claim that presence, I can get through anything today. That's all that is required of any of us, to live today."

Amen. :)
