Revelation #16: The Perfect Present


As I am

Looking back at

the photos of the past

I am also

Looking Forward to

the photos I would like to see in the future,

Pain fills my heart

over "what was"

&

Pain fills my heart

over "what may be"~

yet

Joy also fills my heart

over "what was"

Joy allso fills my heart

over "what will be".

What "was"

is gone

What I think "will be"

may or may not happen,

so what about

the

Present~

that is

Today.

Think about it~

Today is the past of the future

and it is the future of the past.

So if

Today

is the past and the future

how do I & how do you

live in the

Present

without the

remnants of the past

and

the what ifs of the future

infecting

the precious

Present?

Well...

God

sent the

Way

swaddled as a Baby

Robed as a Man

to

deal with the past~

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, to deliver those who are crushed..." Luke 4:18

If

Jesus

came to heal the brokenhearted

then He takes the pain of the past

and

If

Jesus

came to give eternal life

then He has our future all taken care of too~

"...and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death;

there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain;

the first things have passed away." Revelation 21:4

Then

He has left

The Present

to be a time

filled with

Joy

Peace

&

Hope

because

He is in our past

He is in our future

and

He is in our present

when

He is our

Peace~

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you .

Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:27

When He is our

Joy~

"Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full." John 16:24

When He is our

Hope~

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.

This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, I Peter 1:3-4

And

if

God says that

He is

"the Alpha and the Omega,

the One

Who is,

Who was, and

Who is coming,

the Almighty." Revelations 1:8

then

He is

in every moment

of every day

making

every moment

the perfect moment

to live in.

So

let's live out

Revelation #16:

The Perfect Present

and

Be joyful in hope,

Patient in affliction,

Faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

and

Do not worry about tomorrow,

for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Matthew 6:34

making

every moment

The Perfect Present.
