Help me live in the NOW

Dear God, help me love the life I live right now. Keep me from looking over my shoulder with “O, if only…” regrets or falling victim to future tripping with “One of these days…”

Show me the good things I often overlook and help me be content with what I have. Forgive me when I compare myself to others past or present, forgive me for longing for things outside of you and your kingdom. Remove every covetous bone from my body and soul.

Thank you for loving me right where I am, right as I am. Help me keep my eyes on you and teach me to be content where I am for Jesus’ sake today.. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
