Thought of the Day August 1, 2017 Living in the present moment.

By 10:59 AM

"The past is no longer yours; the future is not yet in your power. You have only the present wherein to do good." (St Alphonsus Liguori) A simple truth which is hard to practice because it is simple and true. We are like a continual pendulum, seeming to relive the past or living in the fear of the future. It is hard for us to remain in the reality of the present moment. The past is gone and the future is not yet. Only in this present moment will we find God and his grace. Only in this present moment will we find the freedom from the past and the openness to the future as it becomes the present. It is a day to day, even moment to moment, decision to live in the now and meet God in the now.
