Enjoying the Now
Have you ever worked toward a goal such as a desired salary range, a new position at work, a degree, a certain number of followers on social media, etc…
Once you hit that the goal, what’s next?
You obtain the desired salary, you enjoy it for a quick moment and then you want more.
You get the new job and the excitement quickly goes away after the stress of training.
There’s always a new goal, new accomplishment, or new task that strive towards after the high of reaching your initial goal fades. The sermon at church was recently about this.
My pastor mentioned it is like you are constantly chasing the high of what’s next and not enjoying the now of the moment.
There’s always going to be a new car, new position, more money, bigger house, etc… that you want, but have you taken a moment to be present in the now and trust God with the next thing.
I’m sure many of the things we are experiencing now are answered prayers, which we previously prayed.
I’m making a conscious decision to enjoy them now and I’m trusting God with what’s next. Of course, I still have goals, desires, and things I would like to accomplish, but I’m also going to rest in what I know God has already done and I’ll leave the future to him.
“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”
Jeremiah 32:27 KJV
