Be present!

I can still find it amazing how much your mind can just go into overdrive thinking, analyzing, tearing things down, building things up, and on and on.  You get to a point where you think that you are going crazy because you just can’t turn off all the things going through your mind.  I realized a long time ago that going through this grief process that my mind’s filter was going to cause me to blow a number of things out of proportion.  In order to quiet my mind and process it through I would first ask God–‘Is this you bringing things to the surface that I need to look at or is this the enemy wanting to bring fear, doubt and anxiety into my life?” Every now and then I will hear to go get my journal.  It is fascinating that the simple act of writing out on paper your thoughts how much you can process and put things into perspective.  It is still amazing to me after writing pages and pages that always at the end God has shown me the answer.  Every time there is that place where it is revealed that you just need to let go of all of those expectations you have in your life and learn how to be still and just “be”.  Too many times I have found that when you quit obsessing over all the “what ifs” your life becomes much happier. To truly look at the amazing reality that you have in front of you. To absolutely love this moment in my life and what all it has to offer.  The most beautiful gift I can give myself is to see the blessing in the person in front of me and just be “present” with them with no expectations.  To truly enjoy those times of being content.  That to me is living the life that God wants for each one of us because it is filled with an abundance of love, joy and peace.
