God’s presence can’t be experienced except moment by moment, and that means we have to show up in each moment. Getting ahead of this moment in regard to our relationships, our vocations, our dreams, and aspirations simply prevents us from knowing God. . . .
In my role as a mentor to a number of young women, I often say, “Don’t get ahead of your nose.” It’s a great reminder that one is projecting, and it quickly brings us back to the present. I also suggest that whenever thoughts of the future come into your mind, you envision blowing them away. This may sound silly but it’s effective. I have used it for years.
