Here…

Here is where life happens.

Each day.

Right now.

Here is where the moments we don’t want to miss are…where memories are made.

Here is where He is…with us…every step of the way.

Yesterday haunts us with regrets, but here is where a difference can be made.

Mistakes corrected.

Forgiveness asked for, given, and received.

Tomorrow changed…simply by what happens…here.
There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Message
It’s Five Minute Friday where Lisa-Jo offers a writing prompt and for 5 minutes we write, without editing or over thinking. Today’s word prompt: Here.

In Christ,
Laura

  1. Here is where He is. I love this. I often allow my mind to drift back to the past. The "Would have's, should have's, could have's" haunt me. And then I want to hurry up for tomorrow, so that I can jump from here to there, forgetting that He's called me to fully live today!

    1. Barbie, I feel as if God has been teaching me this very thing this year. It's not such an easy lesson to learn! But through every lesson He teaches, He walks through it with us. Praise God!
      Thanks for your visit friend! ~Laura

  2. Yes, we can't undo yesterday's mistakes but we can learn from them. And here is where He is. May I be here also.

    Beautiful post for Five Minute Friday.

    Blessings and love,

  3. Love what you have written Laura. I work in Social Work and my immediate thoughts are for the many people who we see who are tired, worn out through the deceit of sin in their lives... dying of illnesses, in need of being 'here' to read this.

    1. Thank you Wendy. I wonder if anything has the power to drain us of energy the way sin does.

  7. I agree Laura - sin drains us of energy... when David kept quiet regarding known sin in his life, even his bones ached and waxed old... unrepented of sin even affects our health.

  8. Yes, right here with me--in the mistakes and in the forgiveness. There's such comfort in this writing.
