Thought of the Day February 1, 2024 The present moment

By 9:56 AM

 "Be sure to taste the moment to the full. The Lord always reveals himself to you where you are most fully present. In your prayer, try to present your anxieties, struggles, and fears to him, and let him show you the way to follow him. More important than anything else is to follow the Lord. The rest is secondary. If you follow him, you can follow him as a priest, as a lay minister, as a single person, or as a married person; but what really counts is that he is the center." Henri Nouwen

It is hard for us to live in the present moment. One of the tactics of the devil is to entrap us in the past or disillusion us about the future. For he knows that God is not in the past nor in the future. God is always in the present moment. But if we are not attentive to the present moment, we may missed the grace. Jesus said that his sheep know his voice and follow him. We can't follow him in the present moment if we are living either in the past or the future. In those moments, it is not Jesus we are following.
