[Slow down⚠️ The key to Happiness I’m learning, (as I struggle to take breaks n rest as an adult 🤦♀️🤷♀️), is being present in every moment. The hardest, but most rewarding thing...anyone else struggle here?
From my devotional- “All the spiritual masters– from inside and outside the Jesus tradition- agree on this (as do secular psychologists, mindfulness experts, etc): if there’s a secret to happiness, it’s simple—PRESENCE to the moment! The more present we are to the NOW, the more grateful we are for what is, the more we tap into JOY.
We often vow to give God “our future” like some heroic gesture. But the future is easy to give God for the simple fact that we don’t have it.
All we have is the present. The here and now. This moment, this pain, this joy, this gratitude, this surrender. And the more moments we slowly and gratefully turn over to God, the more we tap into his joy.
