Living In The Now

15. December 2016 Affirming Fridays 0

If you had told me in January 2016 that I’d be where I am NOW, I would have looked at you as though you’d lost your mind. Well, the year is winding down in the most unexpected way, and it hasn’t been pleasant. The turns and mishaps seemed to multiply like crazy this year, and yet I’m still standing.

Well, not standing but holding on to every bit of hope I can muster. I’m faithing it hard. I’m holding God to every promise. I’m believing He will prove to be faithful. NOW has been rough. Now has been testing me. Now has nearly turned my life inside out and upside down, and yet I’m still standing.

Well, not standing but wrestling fears and putting on love despite the circumstances. I’m hoping hard. I’m holding on to every truth that’s getting rooted in me. NOW has called me to step up and step out. NOW is pushing me forward. NOW is whispering “this too shall pass.” In this right now moment, I’m choosing to believe that I’ll see the goodness of God in the land of the living – NOW.


God is with me. He is present, and I am not alone. He knows my yesterday, my NOW, and my tomorrow. I need not worry how things will shape and turn. I need only trust that God is present with me now. And that is good news.

May we all be encouraged in knowing this too shall pass.
Joy will come again. Hope will rise. Goodness will come again and again. This I believe. Our now is still holds promise.

Linking up with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. Tonight’s prompt was “Now.”
