Live in the Moment

“But Martha was distracted by all the preparations to be made. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord replied, “you are worried and upset about many things. But only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, and it will not be taken away from her” Luke 10:40-42, Berean Study Bible.

While lying on my husband’s chest one morning, the Lord spoke to me, saying, “Don’t think about anything else, but this moment. Hear his heartbeat. Breathe in the smell of his body. Talk with him and share a laugh. Be present in this moment with him, and don’t let it simply go by because you are focused on other things.”

Sometimes in life, our moments are not fully experienced and not fully lived because we are not present in the moment. Our minds can be full of cares, and it steals the precious moments away from us that our Father has given to us to enjoy.

My sister, be present in each moment of your life. Don’t let it simply go by because you are focused on things that don’t matter. Live in the moment, and you will have a full treasure of memories.

Prayer: Father, thank you for the life you’ve given me. Help me learn to live and enjoy every moment you’ve blessed me with. Help me to be present and not consumed with cares. Help me enjoy the life and the people you’ve given me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalm 94:19)

  1. Thank you Father God for allowing this beautiful encouragement devotional thought Sis. Kesha Love you have been comfort me and my life and I truly need your Love and protection to continue to comfort me and your loving arms this and Jesus name Amen again say Thank you Father God ❤🌷❤

  2. Living in the moment also means accepting the truth God exposes in our life. For some of us that means choosing to love and laugh with our children in the middle of a heart-breaking marriage. You accept the truth of who your spouse is and what he has done but consciously decide to enjoy your life moment by moment anyways. This too is living in the moment.

  3. So many things on the brain, some painful, some confusing, all needing a solution but none seem forthcoming. These thoughts steal the joys of the present. Lord help me to focus on You and the joy of Your presence…the better part of my present! Thank You for every single blessing around me, as I refocus I will see each of them. You are the God of solutions, I will rest in Your word that says KJV Psalms 32
    8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
    You are in control and I will enjoy the blessings You have placed in my life.
    Thank You Holy Spirit for using DOTK to reach me and many others just when we need You!

  6. I have lived my life so closed off, I forgot how to be present and really enjoy what I have. I take so many things for granted, worrkng about what i dont have and not appreciating what I do have. Lord help me to appreciate this time I have with my mom, help me to relax, laugh and just have fun with her. Help me to let go of my anger and fear so I can open up my heart and be present.
