The Present (poem)

The Present

The Present is here, this, now.
The Present is the great I am.
It doesn’t grip your heart with anxiousness from what-ifs;
It doesn’t drown you in self-pity;
It doesn’t condemn you with regrets.

The Present envelops you with grace and love;
Solid ground.

His Presence is often subtle or goes unnoticed—when the cares of life attempt to ferociously swallow you—whole.

But, His Presence is loud, gloriously loud!—when you care to listen—to the inner depths of your beating heart.

When you pull the fragmented thoughts of tomorrows back into now—this moment; The Present.
God is here.
Till eternity.

He’s everywhere you go, whatever you do, however you are.

When you are aware of The Present,
Your senses heightened;
Flowers appear;
Musical notes come alive;
People seem friendlier, you are friendlier;
It’s easier to breathe;
It’s possible to smile from within, despite.

When you are aware of The Present,
His love sustains you;
Eternity appears;
Heaven comes to earth;
The Present is here, this, now.
The Present, The Present, The Present.

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 AMP
