Think of those moments that seemed to stand still. The time your shared tears of joy with a friend. Worship that filled your heart with joy. What were they really about? What made the moment special?
Why not figure that out, latch on to it, and never let go?
Want to know what it is?
Let me give you some hints:
“…in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore,” Psalm 16:1
“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control,” Galatians 5:22-23
Drop the cell phone. Put down the laptop. It’s about to get real.
Empty the moment of selfish expectation and fill it with the presence of God. Seize the moment by finding God in it.
Then, you can truly see. You can look deeply into your loved one’s eyes and experience the eternal in the fleeting.
Then, your life will be filled with timeless moments, for you will have filled them with the timeless presence.
Then, your seemingly meaningless moments will be filled with the meaning and purpose of the Ages.
You will experience an eternal kind of life(John 17:3).
It’s all here. It’s right now. In this moment.
