Today I’m reminding myself that where I am is where I should be. 

No matter how much I think I want to be in the other room. As much as I want the appreciation I think I deserve. Regardless of whether I feel my efforts are or noticed or not, He knows where I will bring Him the most glory. And I have to trust that. 

Oftentimes, I think the grass is greener on the other side and forget that the side I’m on is personally landscaped and fertilized for me. When I start wishing my situation was different, I'm not only telling God He doesn't know what He's doing but I'm missing the opportunites in front of me. It's a waste of time. Today, I'm choosing to be present where I am and realize that I've been placed here for a specific reason.

May He teach us to be present on our own side of the fence.


Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places…~Ps. 16:5-6


He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters ~Ps. 23:2 

This is part of 31 days (of being present). Join the other 31 day-ers here.
