How many moments take your breath away? How many of them should?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about living in the moment.  Not living recklessly, but being fully present and available to the moment that Christ has put before me.  As I read Jesus in the Scriptures, I see Him being completely attentive to the moment.  (More on that coming later.)

Anywho, I came across a book on titled “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are”. At the book page there was a video that was very touching.

Watch the video here.

“I slept and dreamt life was joy, I awoke and saw life was service, I acted and, behold, service was joy.”

  1. Time, does it really slip away? Where does it go then? What is time in Christ? In Him are all the eternities of the past, present, and future, all in Christ. We live in Him who has no such limitations. He is the one who always was, is and will always be. That is where we live and have our being in Him. Rushing for what? Let’s just breathe Him in, and linger in His Breath. Jesus Christ is in all those things in the video. He is glory of the sunset, the warmth of summer days, the crackling of dry leaves underfoot, the misty play of twilight, and well, I could go on forever bro couldn’t I? He is every moment, so why rush? He is always there in us and we in Him. Let’s live in the moment of Christ, who is the Life of every moment there has ever been or ever will be. Do you feel Him in this moment? It is all about Him. Isn’t that most fantastic? Our true Life, our true Reality, has no boundaries of time or space. We never loose a single moment, they are well kept in Him who takes all things into Himself. That is the Awesome who takes our breath away with His Love, Jesus Christ!

    • Thanks, Kat. Yes, living in Christ is to live fully in the moment. Everything is in Him! I need to learn how to slow down and soak Him in from all around me.
