I came across this quote in my prayer journal and couldn't not share it. It deserves a slow, careful read. Your reward will be a greater sense of peace—an especially valuable gift this time of year. Enjoy!
"I was regretting the past and fearing the future. Suddenly God was speaking: 'My name is I am.' I waited and God continued: 'When you live in the past, with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I was. When you live in the future, with its problems and fears, it is hard. My name is not I will be. When you live in this moment, it is not hard. I am here. My name is I AM."
