Be Here Now

June 19, 2008

I didn’t have Captivating (written by Jon and Stasi Eldredge) with me last night when I made my post, but there were two passages that caught my eye and soul:

If you are called, God will make a way. Either where you are or through a change of circumstances. Follow your Lover (God); respond to His invitations. With Him, there is no stopping you. (211)

I’m all too guilty of wanting to take matters into my own hands. I have felt the call of the Almighty God, and I need to hand over the steering wheel. I struggle with patience, and I need to remember that He will provide what is necessary.

Now we should live when the pulse of life is strong. Life is a tenuous thing… fragile, fleeting. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Be here now! Be here now! BE HERE NOW!

Be here now. Live in the now.

And, finally, lyrics from Tom Petty:

You belong among the wildflowers

You belong in a boat out at sea

You belong with love on your arm

You belong somewhere you feel free.
