Life on Hold

I have never learned to live life in the present. To be satisfied with life as it is now, to be fully present in what ever happens. I have always been looking forward to my life starting; to do the things I have always wanted to do, to fulfill my calling.

When I was a child I would dream of what I was going to be as an adult.
When I was a student I thought of what I would do when graduated.
When I worked in taxation I dreamed of going back to university to pursue the another course of study and work.
When I was a elder in my church I dreamed of what the church could be like, one day.

Now I feel I come to the end of my dreams and all that is left is the fall.

I've often felt this way. The help I've found is losing myself in Christ. Everything else is vanity. Matthew 6.34 made a difference for me this week.

Thanks Jan.

Yes, todays truobles are enough in themselves. I agrree anything other than Jesus really is vanity. I'm ashamed how oftenI loose my focus from him and become discouraged.
