It’s been said that each life is like a book, lived one chapter at a time. If you think your most fruitful years are behind you, remember you’re writing a new chapter now. Learn to live each day with contentment in the present.
Near the end of Moses’ life, God showed him the Promised Land. Clearly, he had accomplished his mission in life. But he didn’t long for the miracles of his “glory days.” Instead, Moses was content to obey God in the present. In his sunset years, he mentored Joshua to be his successor (Deuteronomy 31:1-8).
Living contentedly in the present has a way of making us productive for a lifetime – for God’s glory. – Dennis Fisher
I give my life to you, O Lord,
And live for You each day;
Grant me contentment as I strive
To follow and obey. – Sper
Living in the past paralyzes the present and bankrupts the future.
