A Moment to Reflect-2

Another of my favourite writers is Henri Nouwen. 
He reminds me of the importance of living in the present, even when the present is a dark or difficult place. 
“While optimism makes us live as if someday soon things will soon go better for us, hope frees us from the need to predict the future and allows us to live in the present, with the deep trust that God will never leave us alone but will fulfil the deepest desires of our heart… Joy in this perspective is the fruit of hope.” 
― Henri J.M. Nouwen, Here and Now: Living in the Spirit
