Simple Faith: Embrace the present moment

When a brilliant ray falls from the sky

like a beam of love to light your path,

be there

to see it.

When a stream of golden sunshine arrives Divine,

just to warm your skin for a moment-

be there

to feel it.

Do you ever wonder why life is so dazzling sometimes?

Are you curious?

Do you notice?

When we’re too busy to open God’s gifts to us,

why should He keep sending them?

After a while,

we become the beauty

we allow

ourselves to accept.

G.K. Chesterton said “Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” If we want more awe, grace, Love, joy, Light and basically Heaven in our lives on earth, we need to embrace those gifts every chance we get. Here are a few ways to do this:

  • pay attention to the beauty in the natural world
  • delight in the people around you
  • take deep breaths
  • meditate
  • spend time in silence
  • keep a gratitude journal
  • notice the innocence of children
  • live in the moment
  • listen to others
  • remember to praise the Source of all good things. James 1:17 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

Are you present enough to notice the gifts God gives you? What are YOU grateful for today? Comment below, and I’d be delighted to keep you in my prayers. 

God, give us the grace to be truly present in our lives. Help us to notice and embrace all the beautiful gifts you are constantly showering with us. Give us the courage to trust we are worthy of accepting Your love and blessings. Help us to know our worth as your children, so we can accept and be grateful for each and every Divine gift you give us. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
