If endings are for gratitude, and beginnings are for faith, what are middles for?
Or are there middles?
It’s not a space to suspend while you wait for something better.
This moment is not to be wasted. It is to be filled.
Yes, we still anticipate change for moments yet to come. And we still look back on moments past to reminisce.
But in this very moment—regardless of what bad or good things are also in it—we are to live joyfully, to love flamboyantly, to believe zealously.
This is the moment God is most present in our lives.
It is the ending of one thing, whether we understand why or not (thank God for it).
It is the beginning of a new thing, however large or small (grasp grace that accompanies it).
There is enough in this moment.

Do you look back more, look ahead more, or do you stay mostly in this moment? Let’s discuss in the comments.
