All I Have Is Now

All I have is now.  For such a time as this, I was placed upon on this earth. 

I am not promised tomorrow; all I have is now. 

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Now is the time I must adjust my thoughts, my motives, my beliefs.  Now is the time I must act in obedience, according to faith.  Now is the time to ready myself for what lies ahead.

I cannot relive yesterday; all I have is now.

Now is the time I must choose to let go of the past and its hurts and its oppression, for now is the time I must be free to run the race set before me.  Now is the time I must choose to let go of the past and its glory and its fame, for now is the time I must give 100% in response to today’s assignment.

Now is the time to love.  Now is the time to encourage.  Now is the time to teach.  Now is the time to forgive.  Now is the time to serve.  Now is the time to worship.  Now is the time to take hold of the Word for life.

Now is the time to walk away from that which holds me back.  Now is the time to press forward into new territory.  Now is the time to build a foundation of remembrances, reminders of faith and victory.

Now is the time to live with abandonment as though HE has begun a new thing, for my past has been forgiven and redeemed and my future is secure in victory and for eternity.

All I have is now.  For such a time as this, I was placed upon on this earth.

    • It was your itch that inspired me, Robin. I wrote this one soon after reading the story about your friend from long ago, the friend who is for the present, unreachable. All we have is now; perhaps one day she can move from yesteryear into your now.
