March 15th: Just for Today

March 15th-Prayer

Recently, I have been burdened with too many commitments and too little time.

I know that I must finish each project in front of me but, overtaxed and worn, it is hard to keep going when I so want to stop.

So, when I find myself in the midst of a task that proves to be too great to bear, I reflect on a quote that has always helped me:

Just for today.

It is a simple saying but it reminds me that all I have to do is get through the present moment: the past is now gone and the future is not my concern.

I can tolerate any difficult situation for one day, one hour, one minute, one second if necessary.

Life is sometimes difficult, commitments can often weigh heavy, but if when I am overwhelmed I calm my mind and focus on the day… I will make it through.

“Dear God, help me to have the strength I need to see a task through to completion. Help me to be calm and focused as I work towards my goal.”

  1. I am right there with you as my semester is starting to catch up with me. There are times I wish to be a child again haha

    • Just keep diverting your mind back to the present. I told you… I had to wear a rubber band on my wrist and snap it every once in awhile when I would catch my mind wandering to a “dark place.” I just saw a movie where they “counted to three” silently…. whatever you have to do to stay in the moment…. Today… I drilled, sanded, and painted gates and that kept my mind right where it needed to be: in the moment. 🙂 D.

  2. Love it!
    Went to a wonderful event with friends tonight and with the sun setting at one point and the full Moon rising on the other I remembered there is beauty all around me to ease the pain.
    I am “reinlisting” my elastic wurst band tonight before I go to sleep. 😌
