Your Purpose Is Calling

Do You Live In The Past?

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, – Philippians 3:13

Too many times we are either living our lives in the future or in the past?  We are trying to make up for the mistakes of the past, and we are trying hard not to repeat those mistakes in the future.

I’ve heard this quote contributed to Mother Teresa, “The past is history. The future is a mystery and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called ‘the present.'”

The real present is living each day one day at a time.  One moment at a time.  Not focusing on the past.  We can have goals for our future, but when we live in the past or in the future too much, we miss what is happening today.
