We live in a culture where we spend more time in the past or in the future and not in the now. We can experience God wherever we go and receive the goodness of God wherever and whenever we are. The problem is that we are never here. How we respond to the place is how we respond to God. Everything we long for is right here right now. Growth is about awareness. Renewing our mind involves becoming aware of everything that we already are in Him. Our experience of God is dependent on whether or not we are paying attention to this moment. Be still and know that He is God.
