As a new Christian I struggle with living in the moment, going where the Holy Spirit leads me, and being obedient to God's guidance through life, because confusion and uncertainty take over. It's as if the old self is trying to take back control through misdirection and creating a belief that the old way is better.
Living in the moment is about letting go to God's Grace because He really wants so much more for our lives than we ever do and all because of His Love for us. Praying in that moment of confusion and uncertainty creates focus and builds the relationship we have with our Father. When you find yourself being misguided by your old self, just talk to our Father.
"May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all." 2 Corinthians 13:14 (NIV)
