One Moment at a Time

 
By:  Mission Team July 24, 2021

Live each moment as if it's your last.

 That's a classic term to hear, especially from Catholics, am I right? But there is so much truth to it. You see, the reason why we want to live each moment as they come, as well as enjoy them, is because our God is a God of the eternal present. Never be worried about the future, or ashamed of the past, always keep your head up. But this blog is not just about living in the present, this is something else. Dr. Seuss had a quote that made me think about how beautiful each moment is, and how frequently we overlook it.

"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory." - Dr. Seuss

You Will Never Get This Again

This Hawaiian guy once told me and my fellow missionaries that we should not look at our bad circumstances and complain, but try to find a way to enjoy it because we will never be able to do this again with the people that are around us. That happens a lot in life, bad things come up, hardships and trials, and we can only think to complain, but when we look back on it, we can see the beauty in it. Each moment is so valuable because we never know which will be our last and we never know if we will be able to do anything similar again.

I remember when I first started saying my thank you prayers to God every night. I will lie in bed and just thank God for all the great good He has done for me. I love recounting what happened throughout the day and recalling all the good stuff, but sometimes they fill me with sorrow for not having lived those moments out to the fullest. Dr. Seuss makes an amazing point, but I feel like part of his quote is missing. It should end with, "so live each moment as they come and them as a gift."  Each moment we are given is a gift for everything that God gives us is a gift, a free gift of love as a matter of fact.

A Challenge for You

I challenge you readers to everyday thank and praise God for all the good that He is doing in your life. Appreciate each moment and see the value that is in them. Don't overlook them and say, “Woe is me” but instead say, “Thank you God!” You were given one life on this good earth, and I ask that you take that and cherish it. You will never be able to repeat anything that you do, so make sure not to miss out on the value of each moment.

Pray with Me, Brothers and Sisters

"Lord God almighty, I pray right now that you fill all the hearts of your people this day. Help them to be able to see you in all things and to always appreciate the great good you do in our lives. I thank you Lord, for you are a compassionate and forgiving God. Amen."
