Moment by Moment

Growing up, my mom use to always utter the phrase "this too shall pass" after any crisis or catastrophe I would face.  It honestly used to drive me crazy.  Not that I didn't understand the temporary nature of my ordeal, but at the time it was hard to see past the moment. 

Not matter where you are today, it will pass.  Good times, bad times, times of uncertainty, times of victory, all moments are made to pass, that is why they are moments.  Understanding the temporary nature of these moments allows us the ability to see the temporary nature of our lives and to fully embrace the opportunity to learn and move forward to the next moment.

At the age of 44, I am made up of many moments.  Some I am very proud of and some not so much.  Some that created a great deal of pain and some that produced amazing amounts of joy.  Each day I make the choice of what to do with the moments that present themselves.  I often can not control these moments I can only decided how I will embrace them. 

Our lives and each minute we live has been designed by God for a purpose.  I Cor. 3:18, "But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."  Moments do have the opportunity to transform us, but they are also only temporary until the next moment.  The finished product is our goal.  Let's try to see today as but a moment in a life being transformed to the Glory of the Lord.

For me it seems like the part that's the hardest is the monmet in-between having a thought and the words actually coming out of my mouth (ADHD anyone?!?) o.O But as I'm getting older I'm noticing that I might wait a tenth of a second first before inappropriate stuff just flies out. Maybe that's part of the reason I like the internet so much, I can read and reread what I write and TRULY get my point across, unlike real life where sometimes I'll say something and people will be like O.o
