This scripture verse is speaking about not placing all our thoughts and hopes into a tomorrow we are never promised. Each one of us are only given this moment, right now in which to live.
Today ends another year and many will make and break new resolutions. Many will reformulate what brings them meaning and purpose and place a great deal of effort, work and determintation on changing or going after new goals.
In this scripture, Jesus is teaching his disciples and us to be aware of the fact as humans we tend to live in the future or the past and find it difficult to live Now. Every day is a new beginning and offers a fresh start.
If we learn to live fully present in the Now moments, taking every opportunity to enter into God's Spirit, we partake of his divine purposes and discover a depth of meaning.
Personal relationship with God and others are intricately intertwined in what brings purpose into each moment.
Faith is lived now, embracing the good and bad in life.
Appreciating each breath and each new day as gifts and learning to be God-conscious instead of self-centered ushers us into the realm of holiness.
There is no higher purpose than to center all of whom we are becoming in the Godhead whose love is the fragrance of our very life.
Living today and each new day as opportunities to enter into God's intentions and purposes - growing in my understanding of Grace!Obtaining a God-perspective is not an easy task, but is one we can attain to enter into with Holy Spirit's empowerment ----- relaxing in today's moments and fully embrace the prommise of Christ's rest and all he has provided for us to live godly lifestyles.
