Welcome to Five Minute Friday a spontaneous writing break hosted by Lisa-Jo. This week's word prompt is Present.
I dwell in the future. The advantage of a being a future dweller is that I Have A Plan. Not only a Plan A but a Plan B, and often a Plan C. Planning is good. Many pitfalls are avoided by thinking ahead, examining possibilities and probabilities, and then choosing a direction.
The downfall of a future dweller is an inability to live in the present, to enjoy this moment in time, to savor what is happening now, to rest in what is - not what may come in the future.
For God all time is now. All time is the present - past, present, and future. My struggle is to learn to enjoy what is now, not to fret about what might happen tomorrow or next week. If God exists in the present, then that is a good place to be.
