We Encourage - Be Present

Today is a simple one my friends...

Today I simply want to encourage you to be present.

Present with God.

Present with your spouse.

Present with your kids.

Present in your workplace.

I fill up entirely too much time thinking about what I have to do next or how much I am not getting done.

Worrying about situations I cannot control.

I don't want to miss the good stuff. I don't want to miss these moments...

Jami,
You are such a blessing. I have been praying and praying to work on being present. I am always so distracted and just so busy, that I just want to "be."
Thank you for allowing God to use you!
Much love,
Melanie

Could not agree more! God has really been convicting me about this topic in general... be present. Thank you for the reminder!! xo

again we are on the same page. live in the moment. our kids grow to fast and life passes quickly. it's silly not to be present.

Rebecca @ heartland farmhouse said...

so seemingly simply & easily said, yet so EASY to forget!

Thanks for the encouragement!

Very true...however I find this easier to do (for me) outside the home b/c the house seems to distract me the most.

Emily said...

Some days I have so much on my mind I feel like I'm not even there, I hate that. Thanks for the reminder! It's a choice I must live everyday :) hugs!
