Craig Harrison - Coffee With Jesus

As I have my cup of coffee with Jesus, and read my reflections, I am stuck on the word “IF.”  How often do we use that word “IF?”  I would have done this or that “IF” this had happened in my life, “IF” things had turned out differently.  “IF” always takes us to the past.  Jesus calls us to live in the present, to “BE!”

I love these moments in the morning, because they allow me to BE with HIM, to breathe in the newness of life, and hope, and peace.  When I live in the “IF,” I am agitated, frustrated, and cannot find peace.  To BE is not a far place to travel to, it is just PRESENT, in this moment.  It is here that we encounter the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the mystery of our faith, the PRESENT…HIS PRESENCE.

Today, I am going to strive to BE, and, IF I do not, that is my own doing.  My first thought is I wonder IF it is going to be 100° here today!  Negativity and dread already!  So, I change my thinking; it is going to BE at least 100 degrees?!  See how easy that is?

Have a wonderful day!
