LIVING IN THE MOMENT


By Akin Ojumu

There’s nothing worse than going through life and letting it pass us by. It is easy to spend every moment of our existence counting time and yet fail to make the time we have count. 

We often lose sight of the precious moments we are buffeted with on a daily basis, and we fail to appreciate the little showers of blessings life brings our way. 

To truly be alive, we must embrace the life we have. For us to squeeze the last drop of the best out of life, we have to rely on the help of the Holy Spirit.

It is only God that can keep us in the moment. Without God we’ll be consumed with regret of what we don’t have, could have, or should have and completely miss out on enjoying that which we do have.

"Keep Me In The Moment" - Jeremy Camp

I’ve been thinking ‘bout time
And where does it go
How can I stop my life from passing me by I don’t know 
I’ve been thinking ‘bout family and how it’s going so fast
Will I wake up one morning just wishing that I could go back 
I’ve been thinking ‘bout lately maybe
I can make a change and let You change me
So, with all of my heart this is my prayer

Singing Oh Lord keep me in the moment
Help me live with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what You have for me
Singing Oh Lord show me what matters
Throw away what I’m chasing after
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what You have for me
Keep me in the moment
Keep me in the moment
Keep me in the moment
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss what You have for me

When I wake up in the morning
Lord, search my heart
Don’t let me stray, I just wanna stay where You are 
All I got is one shot, one try
One go around in this beautiful life
Nothing is wasted when everything’s placed in Your hands

I’ve been thinking about heaven
And the promise You hold
So, it’s all eyes on You until the day
You call me home
