present

wholly present…

The thought has come several times today…
Be wholly present where you are…
Not in those exact words…
and maybe not in words at all…
more of an impression…

Be wholly focused on what you are doing…

With full days…
distraction… becomes an enemy…
mistakes made…
things forgotten…

One thing at a time

A reminder to stay where I am…
not think about what’s next…
or what’s later today…
or tomorrow…
or the day after the day after tomorrow…

Wholly present…
not something I’m really good at…
but wholly important…

He is only present tense…
I AM… His name…
He is only found in our present moment…
even though He is eternal…

We… inhabiting only a single moment at a time…
cannot connect with Him ruminating on the past…
or in the worrying over future…

He is only in our present…
there is no… What if…
there is only… What is…

As His… The Lord’s
I am one who needs His help…

To gain access to His help…
I must be fully vested in the present moment…
in work…
in relationship…
in planning…

Wondering where these impressions…
thoughts are leading…
A preparation…?
A warning…?
Simply a new teaching…?

Whatever… I feel the need to practice…
wholly presence…

A challenge for this poor and needy soul…

(Even now I find myself distracted by something else…
before this is wholly done… I’m back… that voice it said…
One thing at a time…)

If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
Galatians 5:25 ESV
Moment by moment…
wholly present…
