Have you ever felt like you’re not where you want to be? That you should be somewhere else? Or have you ever wished that you could just get away from yourself? Have you gotten lost in the muck of everyday life?

There’s good news: Our Father in Heaven knows exactly what it’s like to be “stuck” here on Earth — stuck in ourselves, mired in the day-to-day, trapped in nostalgia or immobilized by dreams of what might be. And by focusing on God’s plan for ourselves, we can find joy in living in the eternal NOW.
