Focus on Today

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind.  So much to do and not enough time to do it.  Also, I think my mind has been more busy than anything and I just need to take a deep breath and relax.  I am constantly thinking about the future.  I am thinking about what it is going to be like when our new child is here, all the things I want to do for the house we are moving into in June, my daughter and how I'm going to feel when she is in Kindergarten this August.  It never ends.  But yesterday God spoke to me in that still small voice that always jolts me out of myself.  He said, "focus on today."  That's it.  No burning bush or sea parting, just the quiet reminder that I need to focus on today.  There is a verse in Matthew 6:34 that says "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself."  Today is what matters.  How am I going to make today a memorable one?   How am I going to honor God in my actions today?  In my thoughts today?

I don't want to miss the memories of today because I'm focused on the memories I'm going to make in the future.  I won't ever get this day back.  I want to make the most of it. 


  1. Amen! We get so busy worrying about the past or planning for the future, that we forget about today. I want to focus on today.

  2. I totally agree. These moments only come along once.

  3. This really spoke to me. I get so caught up in planning and preparing that I often miss the special moments. I also miss God's finger print and whispers in my life because of busyness. Thank you for this!

  4. Amen! It gets so easy to allow planning and schedules to take over our day that sometimes we miss the Blessings He places in front of us right that moment.

    Thank you for the wonderful reminder!

    Have a Blessed Day!
