Life is a mystery. We cannot see the bigger pattern. According to author and speaker, Richard Rohr, life is a river. He asks an interesting question, "Are you trying to change the course of the river? Or are you in the river?" So often our focus is on how we can change things instead of simply living in the moment. One of my favorite expressions I learned in college during a LaVida trip with Rich Obenschain .... "BE HERE NOW!" It means that we should soak up every moment and enjoy life. Jesus said, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34 God wants us to be able to experience all that He has for us in each moment. Life is so often about "letting go." Let the river carry you. Trust that God is in control.
