"What if instead of discounting the current moment, the uncontrollable, the simply given - what if I counted it - and on the God who controls all? What if all our running around is only our trying to run away from God - the great I AM, present in the present moment? What if I woke to now and refused to hurry because I didn't want to refuse God? What if I didn't discount this moment but counted it for what it is - God here? It is only the present moment alone that holds the possibility of coming into the presence of God."
- Ann Voskamp in One Thousand Gifts Devotional
