"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Slowly but surely I am accepting that right where I am at this moment is right where I should be.

I did just that yesterday. When for really the first time I let go and let what was happening to me, which was anger and rage spew out in front of someone I knew and apparently trusted more than I thought. I did not wait to vent by myself at another time. No. The time was right then and there. Designed by God.

I was at the right place with the right person for the right situation to develop.

This goes for all of us. As we continue our recovery. We are right where we should be. Whether in the midst of working through painful emotional surgery to breaking free finally from a strong bondage that encapsulated us for so many years. We are right where we should be. AMEN!

Detachment involves present moment living - living in the here and now. We allow life to happen instead of forcing and trying to control it. We relinquish regrets over the past and fears about the future. We make the most of each day. -Codependent No More

This moment, we are right where we need to be, right where we are meant to be.

How often we waste our time and energy wishing we were someone else, were doing something else, or were someplace else. We may wish our present circumstances were different.

We needlessly confuse ourselves and divert our energy by thinking that our present moment is a mistake. But we are right where we need to be for now. Our feelings, thoughts, circumstances, challenges, and tasks - all of it is on schedule.

We spoil the beauty of the present moment by wishing for something else.

Come back home to yourself. Come back home to the present moment. We will not change things by escaping or leaving the moment. We will change things by surrendering to and accepting the moment.

Some moments are easier to accept than others.

To trust the process, to trust all of it, without hanging on to the past or peering too far into the future, requires a great deal of faith. Surrender to the moment. If you're feeling angry, get mad. If you're setting a boundary, dive into that. If you're grieving, grieve. Get into it. Step where instinct leads. If you're waiting, wait. If you have a task, throw yourself into the work. Get into the moment; the moment is right.

We are where we are, and it is okay. It is right where we're meant to be to get where we're going tomorrow. And that place will be good.

It has been planned in love for us.

God, help me let go of my need to be someone other than who I am today. Help me dive fully into the present moment. I will accept and surrender to my present moments - the difficult ones and the easy ones, trusting the whole process. I will stop trying to control the process; instead, I will relax and let myself experience it.

  1. Amen, right where we should be sis.

  2. God has every second every breath planned out to perfection. You're exactly where you should be JBR. We all are. That's what's comforting. To know that God is in control and not us. God Bless.

  3. being present, living each moment in the moment. yes!

    JBR thank you so very much for all your prayers!


  4. oh... these words are a great reminder. However, difficult to accept at times. You place it well that even in times of "trouble" we should not just sit aside and accept it, but to reach into ourselves and allow ourselves to feel what we feel and let it be known...

    embracing the moment. Yet, can't help but think, "this is it? this is what I am supposed to be doing/experiencing?"

    Yeah, you're probably right.



    Have a great day! :)

  7. Oh I live this...come back home to yourself. Great word you've shared.
