Present – Here and Now

by Jimmy Pruitt



It’s a cold winter Sunday morning. In my study, I sit and think about the larger issues of life like faith, hope and love. Smiling, my only response is gratitude and worship.

Tomorrow’s cares, concerns and logistics can wait… well… until tomorrow. All I really have is the gift of this moment. I have Him and I have His presence. I am thankful and refreshed.

Just now, I remember a line from a hymn we used to sing, “Count your blessings, name them one by one.” Tomorrow’s concerns will just have to wait, I have some counting to do.
