“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”
Matthew 13:44

Until a few years ago, I misunderstood the importance of the present moment. Most of the time I viewed each event as part of the process of a future goal, marking them off as I moved progressively closer to my objectives. I didn’t realize that I was missing out on the greatest blessing God had for me.

Now, by taking pleasure in every moment as an opportunity to have fellowship with the Lord, I have discovered that I can live in a continual state of peace and joy by simply walking with Him in every circumstance. No matter what is happening, I am learning the secret of being content in every situation.

Living persistently in the conscious awareness of God’s presence is the primary objective of my life. By doing that, I now treat every moment as a precious gift from Him  and embrace every experience as an opportunity to commune with the Lord.
