Live In The Moment

By: Angelina Palumbo [Mentor, OH]

Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time.
Ephesians 5:15–16a (NRSV)

Dear God, please help me to live in the moment,
to embrace each passing day.
Please help me to live life to the fullest
in all I do and say.

Please help me not to dwell on the past
or on what the future may bring.
Help me to enjoy life while it lasts
and not waste my time worrying.

Please help me let go of mistakes I have made,
because they don’t define me.
Please remind me of the price you have paid,
so that I can put my sins behind me.

Please remind me that life is fleeting,
that none of this will last.
Please help me to live life in the moment,
not the future, not the past.

PRAYER: God of life, help me in this New Year to live each moment to the fullest, to make the most of every opportunity, to live each day without regrets—and to give all the glory to you. Amen.

Embrace Life

Don’t get trapped in negativity. Learn to laugh and love and share because the positive things in life far outweigh the negatives. Try new things, meet new people, accomplish your dreams, bring others joy. How will you make the most of God’s gift to you?
