Our culture is consumed with the new.
We’re fascinated by the next.
But we struggle with the now.
The reason this is worth recognizing and considering is that now is when we experience God. (We can only experience God in the present moment because, even though God is everywhen and everywhere, we are limited to only here and only now. We can remember the past. But it’s gone. We can imagine the future, but we can’t get there yet. All we have is the present moment).
And that’s good news, from a spiritual perspective: God is here, now.
That’s good news…unless I don’t know how to be here, now.
