"You will never get to experience today again, so just enjoy today! Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised. Stop worrying about your bills and what you don’t have and live for today. Tomorrow many never come, so enjoy the time you have while you still have it. It’s okay to hope for the future but always remain in the present. Each day you are given a gift and it’s called a new day, so enjoy that present while you have it. If you are blessed to wake up again then enjoy that day’s present, and keep living each day as if it were your last. Then you will see, that what you were previously worried about will begin to fade as if it never existed." ~ Suzie Suttles

We do not realize the power we hold within us to create and when we are stuck in a negative state of mind we block our natural ability and creative flow. We are infinite beings created by an infinite source, but we waste our power and our infinite resources when we fear, worry or doubt about our situations and circumstances. Our gifts and talents will bless us as well as others when we share our gifts and talents with others, but to do this we must stop fearing and start flowing. I think many times we tend to wish our life away by focusing on the things we don’t have or past mistakes we have made. When we live in the present moment we don’t need to worry about what we don't have, because we are only concerned with today’s needs.

It’s almost like being a child again, because children are not fearful of their needs being provided for, they just know because they received provision the day before. Why then can't we be like little children again and live in the present moment and trust that the universe provides our needs daily? We are created beings just like the trees and all living things, and the universe provides for these things daily. Why can't we trust that the universe will do the same for us?

Stop Fearing and Start Flowing

I simply love how children are so fearless, they are not afraid to dream, they are not afraid to live and they are not afraid to tell you what they think or feel. I love their energy because they just go with the flow of life and they simply live it. At some point in our lives we stop flowing freely and start to worry and fear about everything. I am not sure why this changes or what causes this change, but something within us changes. Maybe this happens because people look at us and try to define us, or maybe this happens because someone told us to stop dreaming. Maybe it happens when others tell us what to believe and think and that takes away our freedom to just flow. When we are living in worry we are living in the past and when we are living in fear we are living in the future.

We live on a planet that is flowing with energy, and that energy flows freely in the present moment. There is nothing wrong with hoping and dreaming of the future, but remain present and live in the moment. This is what children do, they enjoy the present moment, they are not worried about tomorrow, because they are enjoying the space and place they are currently in and letting things happen as they are supposed to happen in the present.

Matthew 18:2-3 (NKJV) says: Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. My interpretation of this scripture is that we should be childlike in our soul/spirit and live in the present moment. When we are living in this manner we are living in our kingdom of heaven because we are not concerned about tomorrow we are freely flowing in the present moment. When we are flowing in the present moment and enjoying the gift of the present, we are not focused on our worries or our fears. When we are living in the present moment we are allowing the provisions to flow to us, but when we have anxiety about our past mistakes or we are in fear about our future, we are stopping the flow of our blessings.

Each Day is A Gift

Be Here Now!

The universe already knows our needs, but when we worry about those needs it takes away from our present day’s gift. Being here now, means being in and enjoying the present moment for the blessing it is. It means putting your energy in to creatively doing something today and using your gifts to bless others to bring the provisions you need. The universe operates on faith and action, and our complete trust in the universe in our time of need is what is required of us. I think we are to enjoy today for what it is and if we are blessed to see tomorrow, then we can enjoy tomorrow for that day. We miss out on today’s blessings worrying about tomorrow when tomorrow is not a promise.

When we worry and stress about tomorrow or the days going forward we are not trusting in our universal source to provide for us. The more we learn to trust our divine universal source, the more we can enjoy the gift of the present moment. We are confident that everything will work out for our good and this lesson in trust, will produce spiritual blessings. The spiritual blessings that come from these lessons are faith, hope, love and trust in our divine universal source. When we remain in the present we enjoy our gifts, promises and blessings that come for that day!
