Thankful For Here

Today I link up with Lisa Jo at Tales From The Gypsy Mama.  It is Five Minute Friday and we are writing on the one-word prompt... Here.  Five minutes set.  GO...

Thankful for Here

And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  Matthew 28:20

God is good.  Here.

I spend too much time wanting for the there.

Wishing for the there.

"Life will be easier there.  The money will be healthier there.  My kids will out grow this...then.  Or there."

But God is in the here.  His kindness is forever, yes.  But His kindness is as much forever there as it is forever here.

Today, I choose to be present in the here.  In the now.  Pursing God on this Friday.  Thankful for what God allows me here. Wanting not for the there.

We are commanded to not worry about the there.  Not to store up treasures in there.

But to be a steward of here.

Lord, forgive me for coveting there.  And chance missing you here. Because as much growth and mercy and love still awaits me, I sit in a mound of plenty right here.

I sit in Your presence here.  In Your favor here.

Even if life doesn't look today like I wanted.... You knew the here was where You would have me.

You knew.

So Father, I take a deep breath, and bask in Your presence with me...Here.

Thank you.  

Thank you that you never leave me or forsake me.
