Living in the Present

Dear God,

I am making a choice to be determined to live in the present, sure of Your guidance about the time and place to make any decisions—and Your guidance about the decisions themselves.  In my high moods, I know that there is nothing that You and I together can’t handle.  In my low moods, the future seems so threatening.

Every spiritual tradition that I know of has counseled living in the present.  Self-help books say the same.  There surely must be something to it.

Be with me in the present today.  Practice makes perfect.  When I consistently practice living in the present, doing so will become easier.

Thank You for guiding me along, footfall by footfall.

Amen.
