Friday Coffee Chat
Hi friends! It’s Friday again, and I am so excited for the weekend ahead! I didn’t have a post scheduled for today, and I didn’t want to rush into a book review, or talk about something boring, so today I will be chatting with you about my week and the upcoming days ahead.
This post won’t be the traditional If We Were Having Coffee post, but feel free to go read through that series!
I want to take a brief moment to just pause.
Where are you with your goals?
Breathe some more.
This past week, I was given a good reminder not to be in a constant state of wishing, hoping, waiting for the next big thing to happen.
I am rather guilty of this in life.
I count down the days until things will change and life will become different.
But you know what? I often find that it is during the moments of down-time, during the times of waiting, that life is happening. It is happening in front of our very eyes, and time won’t slow down for anything.
The ticking of the clock is inevitable, so why can’t we just be content where we are?
The anticipation of waiting for something big and exciting is a powerful thing, but what if we are missing out on life’s beauty by wishing the days away.
What if the ‘dull’ times, are really the best times?
Are you waiting, hoping, dreaming, anticipating something right now?
Are you hurrying life up to get to the next big thing?
Are you trying to speed up the inevitable ticking clock of life?
Or are you content to live in the moment?
Recently, I have been trying to be more intentional about living in the moment, because life goes by in a blink, and I don’t want to spend my life, wishing it all away.
Life is but a vapor.
It’s a flower quickly fading.
We often want to live our life as if we will never die, but it is so important to think about death, and life after death. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2).
Recently, I have been trying to be more intentional about living in the moment because I am SO excited to get married to the love of my life. BUT there is a time and season for everything. Right now (for the next two and a half months), it is my season to be engaged. And I don’t want to wish away the days of my engagement. I don’t want to look back on this season of life and see that I wasn’t truly living because I was only looking towards the next big exciting moment, and I wasn’t living in the present moments.
So here is my challenge to you today. Live in the moment. Be intentional about not wishing away your life, but think often of eternity. Keep your mind on things above.
