The Year of RightNow

Today starts a new writing year for me. Forging ahead with new goals and aspirations, a new focus finds itself in the forefront of my mind. A new word for 2013.

RightNow.

As in:

I will not worry about what might happen, or what will happen, or even what I cannot control. Because God has given me all I need for RightNow.

I don’t know what’s coming, but He does. In fact, because He is the eternal Alpha and Omega God, He’s somehow already there. So when not yet turns into RightNow, God will be there waiting for me with everything I need. And I know I will have what it takes to deal with every single RightNow no matter what.

Yes, 2013 is the year of RightNow

It’s the year of resisting the temptation to glide through one RightNow so I can get to the next one. The year of trusting Almighty God for every RightNow by giving up my propensity to worry. It’s the year of being present inside of each moment rather than biding my time until the next.

This is the year of Matthew 6 living.

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes (vv33-34).

No worry. First things first. RightNow. 2013, here I come. . .

Do you have a word for the new year? A flavor you hope 2013 takes on?
