To Be or Not to Be


What lies before me

hasn't happened yet.

What lies behind me

has already happened.

What lies in front of me

is happening right now.

So do I & do you

look at what was

or

look at what will be

or

live in the moment

whatever the moment is?

Is it a moment of

Sadness~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks in all circumstances"

Is it a moment of

Loneliness~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks in all circumstances"

Is it a moment of

Grief~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks in all circumstances"

Is it a moment of

Confusion~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks in all circumstances"

Is it a moment of

Transition~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks in all circumstances"

Does it matter what the moment is?

Oh to GOD it matters

or

HE

wouldn't tell us~

"...for this is GOD'S’ will for you in CHRIST JESUS"

To

BE JOYFUL

&

PRAY CONTINUALLY

&

GIVE THANKS

but not

FOR

the

sadness, loneliness, grief, confusion, transition or ________

But

IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES~

"We recognize GOD'S sovereign hand is in charge, & not blind fate or chance" (Guzik)

What are you IN?

I don't like what I am

IN

yet I press forward only because

GOD'S WILL is for me & for you

to

BE JOYFUL ALWAYS

&

PRAY CONTINUALLY

&

GIVE THANKS

IN

ALL CIRCUMSTANCES

then

I am & you are

able to

press forward

IN HIS PEACE~

IN the midst of

the "whatever" is happening right now

IN the moment~

because this is the only moment

that is gifted to us

by the ONE who tells us to~

"Be joyful always; pray continually

Give thanks IN all circumstances

for this is GOD'S will for you IN CHRIST JESUS" (I Thessalonians 5:16:18)

Therefore

Why not follow the One who knows us way better than we know ourselves.
