I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, generous, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me to compose because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is present.
Most days, I have a hard time being present. To be present is to be here, to put others before one’s mind. There is a generosity of self when one is present. Yes. This is a daily struggle for me. I find myself drifting in thought most of the day. Ask my #1son. He can talk to me about his day and my mind will just drift away. It’s just so wrong and I don’t have any understanding as to why my brain does this? But! I am determined to let God change me. Even if it hurts. I know he can do it. He is more than able to help me learn how to be present because he is always present.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 ESV
