When you find yourself confused and worried, when you feel a lack of contentment – it’s because you are living in the future! It’s ok to have goals and dreams. But when they start making you unhappy, you need to do a self-check. You can make plans but at the same time, you should focus on the work in front of you each day. True happiness comes in the present day moments not in the “what if’s.”

In the present, you can make a list or a phone call. You can and should pray about all the things you would like to have happen and then you leave it in God’s hands.

Surrendering your dreams to God is the best thing you can do for yourself. Once you get out of the business of anxiously looking at the clock, you will find all kinds of joys in your present environment.

Your only true contentment can come from God and the only place we can experience Him is here. Now.
