Presence

December 28, 2016

Today I choose to be present in my life.  I choose to embrace today with power and strength.  I have come to realize that this very moment, this very second, this very minute is my life.  I have a choice to be present in my life.

We spend far too many days regretting the past, worrying about yesterday and so consumed with the future that today, the only day that really matters, gets swept under the rug.

I have chosen to be present today.  I choose  to be happy, to find joy in the beauty and stillness that surrounds me.  It is the dawning of a new day and  endless possibilities for an even brighter tomorrow.

I know God lives, I know he loves me, I know that no matter how tough some days can be, he will always love me.

There is a Primary song called “Keep The Commandments”.  It speaks of safety, peace and blessings.  There is an Incredible assurance from a higher source that keeping God’s commandments is like life insurance.  When we die, life insurance gives us a financial protection that brings peace in this temporal world.  However; keeping God’s commandments gives us a spiritual peace that money cannot buy.  The assurance that God is good, that this life is really only temporary,  and every choice we make down here determines where we will be up there.

Today I choose goodness, kindness, service, love, peace and an everlasting stillnesss that reminds me that if tomorrow never comes, the people who matter most in my life will know how much I truly love them.

Yearerday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift from God.  Today I choose my thoughts, my actions, my steps, my destiny.  Today is the beginning of endless possibilities.  Today marks the beginning of something that I can control. I am going to make it the best day it can possibly be.  First and foremost I will love myself, then I will put God first, my spouse second, my family third and those around me fourth.  I know that if I do this, I can truly be happy.
