Why is it so hard to live in the present all the time? Hurts from the past haunt us; concern about the future frightens us. If we let him, we serve a God who will heal our hurts. And of what use is it for us to be concerned about the future? We can control so little of it. Stop struggling with your past; stop fretting about the future. Your God will heal your wounds, and He controls your future. The only way to truly feel peace and joy is to live fully in the present.
I know...easier said than done.
