Too Future Focused

Too future focused? Is there really such a thing? I think there can be. 

If I never saw another sunrise, if I never received another gift, I would go to Heaven happy and blessed. Sometimes I think we are too future focused. Too worried about what's going on tomorrow or the next day. Too wrapped up in the planning of the next week's events. Which is something that just seems to come natural to me. I plan. Everything. I plan my days, my meals, my blog posts. I plan what I'm going to say in meetings. I rehearse scenarios in my head over and over again until I get them just right. 

But there are times when it seems like we just need to take a step back, take a breathe, and reevaluate the situation. Enjoy the moment. Soak it all in for just a moment. Relax and just be.  

This is not our final home. So what if the economy goes up in smoke. So what if social security won't even exist when I'm 80. So what if retirement goes down the pooper. I'm going to Heaven with ALL my bills paid!

I didn't earn anything in this life, but it was a gift from my Father. And for that I am truly grateful. "Every good and perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow." James 1:17 

Rejoice for the good gifts in your life are from Our Heavenly Father! 

Just a few thoughts for today. Happy day!!
