figuring out the future

"The more willing I was to look honestly at what I was thinking and saying and doing now, the more easily I would come into touch with the movement of God’s Spirit in me, leading me to the future.  God is a God of the present and reveals to those who are willing to listen carefully to the moment in which they live the steps they are to take toward the future. ‘Do not worry about tomorrow,’ Jesus says.  ‘Tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own’ (Matthew 6:34)."

– Henri Nouwen, In the Name of Jesus, (Crossroad 1989), p.13
