Fully Present
“Therefore, do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” 
Matthew 6:34

Years ago, Spencer Johnson wrote a popular book called “The Present: The Secret to Enjoying Your Work and Life, Now.” His premise was that, to have a life that is effective, you have to learn how to be “fully present.” Most of us have trouble with that. We are too concerned about yesterday, even though we can’t do anything about it. Or we are too apprehensive about tomorrow. God provided a way for us to be “totally present” in every situation and every relationship. It is the Sabbath Principle.

We need to set aside one day in seven in which we shut things down. We don’t look backward; we don’t look forward. We look around at our family – and we look up to God. God provided this for us because we need it. If you want to see the hand, and feel the touch, of Almighty God in your life – Find a Sabbath.
