Today my guest is Ken Boa, President of Reflections Ministries. This is Part 2 of his 3 part series on Transitioning Well – Living this day as if it’s your last.
Do you think it’s possible for a person to miss his life, like a person that misses a plane? Yes! I can live for the future, thinking if I can accomplish this or that, then I’ll be happy, I’ll be content. Guess what happens if you are among the rare people who actually achieved that thing you were really hoping to do? You’ll discover it’s not all it was cracked up to be, that the happiness was only temporary.
So, instead of living in the future, we are called to live in the now and to enjoy His presence in the present tense, to live fully and to recalibrate and to have an understanding that God’s presence in our present is the idea of practicing His presence in the now. You only have one day and that’s this day.
Most of your impact is hidden in this life. But there is a purpose, there is a hope and there is a calling. And my prayer for all of us is that we would seek Him out, ask Him to guide us, empower us and become more like Him.
