But God wants us to live in the present- RIGHT NOW. Don't worry too much about the future- and don't worry about your past- God's got it under control and He knows what He is doing. Worrying will not change what will happen in the future and worrying will not change what has happened in your past. Sometimes we get so caught up in the little things in life that seem to matter at the time- but when we look back, it will not matter in the long run. Try to look past those things that seem important now and focus on things that will last for God. I often get caught up with so much stuff, but most of that stuff I am pressured with will not even matter when we reach heaven. Don't make careless mistakes in the present because you were overtaken by your future or past. Smart choices will allow us to live a happier life and leave us with less regrets in life. It is good to look to the past every once in a while to see how far you've come, what you've learned from your mistakes and also relive happy memories, but don't get so caught up in it that it takes over your present and leaves you empty afterwards.
So, today- live in the present. Don't worry about what tomorrow will bring- but trust in God and don't regret your past, because God still loves you. Just live for today and be content with what God has given you and rejoice because you have another day to live for Him. He has you here on this earth still because He has purpose for your life. He could take your life in an instant- but He knew you were special and could impact the world like no one else could. Enjoy your life- do something amazing today and don't let your past haunt you or your future scare you.
This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
