THINK ONLY OF THE PRESENT

Thought for Today:
THINK ONLY OF THE PRESENT

Let us then think only of the Present, and not permit our minds to wander in curiosity into the future. The future is not yet ours; perhaps it will never be. It is exposing ourselves to temptation to wish, to anticipate God, and to prepare ourselves for things which He may not destine for us. If such things come to pass, He will give us light and strength according to the need. Why should we desire to meet difficulties prematurely, when we have neither strength or light as yet provided for them. Let us give heed to the Present which prepares us for fidelity in the Future.

    It does work sometimes, but some people just can’t keep themselves from thinking about the future.
