Thought of the Day July 31, 2017 Living in the present moment.

By 9:39 AM

"O my God, teach me to be generous
to serve you as you deserve to be served
to give without counting the cost
to fight without fear of being wounded
to work without seeking rest
and to spend myself without expecting any reward
but the knowledge that I am doing your holy will.
Amen (St Ignatius of Loyola) The focus of St. Ignatius was the holy will of God. Was this not the focus of Jesus? Is that not to be our focus as well? What is the will of God for us in the present moment? Many years ago I heard this rule  of life. Do what you are supposed to do; the way you are to do it; when you are to do it; to the best of your ability for the love of God. Living in and embracing the present moment is the will of God. Many of us live in the past or the future and thus miss the grace of the present moment.
