You are where you are. There are things you may or may not be able to change, but at this particular point in time THIS is your reality. Something that you can do is to get on the same page with God.
Our lives are like a book. Sometimes we try to turn back the pages of time because we liked a previous chapter…sometimes we want to linger in a chapter that contains the script of our pain and disappointment…sometimes we just want to return to a chapter that is comfortable and familiar. But in your life, God is not currently in that chapter or on that page. God is on the page of TODAY.
Sometimes we try to jump to a future chapter to “read” the outcome of our current situation. But God is not currently in that chapter or on that page. God is on the page of TODAY. God is not limited by time and space. God has been with us in our past and will be with us in our future. However, God calls us to “get on the same page” with Him TODAY. On today’s page are opportunities for us to receive and learn lessons pertinent to this season of our lives. Human nature tempts us to take “head trips” backwards and forwards, particularly when the NOW is less than appetizing. But God is calling us to focus on the page we are currently on. No matter how difficult, boring, challenging, hurtful or suspense-filled today’s page is, God is with you in the moment. Yes, even on this page, God’s wisdom, blessings and guidance are present.
As the song writer wisely wrote…
One day at a time sweet Jesus that’s all I’m asking from youBy God’s grace and strength, daily seek to be on God’s page and not some other page in your life’s book.
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday’s gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake, teach me to take one day at a time.
