Staying In The Present

Normandy Beach Graves

When something upsetting happens, old memories of previous hurts often come back to haunt me.
This makes it difficult to stay in the present and I start living simultaneously in the past and the future.
The outcomes of the past get projected onto present and future situations.
I become trapped in hopelessness and find it difficult to make healthy decisions.
(Hope For Today, 6 June)

Lord, help me to rejoice in the time I have with my family today.
I don't want to dwell on what might happen in the future;
I want to relish this chance to nurture and cherish the blessings You've given me. Amen.
(Whispers Of Blessing, Day 143)
