Live in the present moment

God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life -- forever.

The Scriptures say:

■Because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at peace with God (Romans 5:1)
■God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never die (John 3:16).
Jesus said:

■"I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest" (John 10:10).
Since God planned for us to have peace and real life right now, why are so many people hurting or angry inside?

Alot of the time what we are angry about is caused by worry about something we may have no control of. What we worry about is relating to something either in the past, or something that hasn’t happened. Living in the present moment erases all such thoughts. Why worry about something in the past that we cannot ever change? Why worry about something that we are not even sure will happen or not? This is why in the present moment, you find true inner peace. In the present moment, there are no problems and no concerns. There is only stillness, and it is within that stillness that you can uncover peace. I used to be such a person that worried all the time, to the point where I had trouble sleeping. Once I learned to live in the present moment, I stopped thinking about the past and any potential problems that may have occurred and allow the future to unfold as God wishes. God wants us to live every moment with joy. The past is gone, the future is uncertain, but the present is a gift. Why do you think it is called a present.

Peace be with you,

"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
