Now-Five Minute Friday

Now I am home.

Now I am comfortable.

Now I am relaxed and full.

This morning I was not.

What if I miss it?

What if I lose it?

What if I forget?

What if there is no one to help?

What if? What if? What if?

It swirled. It stacked and echoed in my head.

Then I read today's prompt: now

Now is what I needed to hear and read.

Now is the time to ..........


Overload myself

With details of what if

Now, live in it!

Move in it!

Function with what I have right in front of me.

Baby steps.

Now I can breathe and focus.


Matthew 6:24: "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (NASB)
