We often find it easy to bark out the order: “stay in the moment”, “ be in the moment or “live in the moment” as if the moment is a bubble that protects us from a past that haunts us or from a future that thaws our frozen dreams.
Recently, while having a healthy conversation with an incoming freshman, the following words rolled off my tongue like a laser locking down its target: ““stay or live in the ‘momentum’”. These words took even me by surprise. I was left to search for meaning of these words. Not quite sure if I get it! But here goes: Staying and living in the “momentum” should never resonate as being another cliche that muscles it’s way as yet another sound bite to wet another’s appetite; rather it is to be seen as the Christian’s conviction staying in rhythm with God’s will for her/his life.
For me staying, being or living in the moment courts the notion that the “here and now” is without movement. It gazes with respect at inertia’s way of standing still when everything else around moves. It falsifies the idea that in certain periods of our lives we become masters of complete control. Of course, we know better, but we somehow can’t seem to refrain from wanting ownership of our existence.
On the other hand, staying “in the momentum” summons the spirit to move past taking “selfies” with our egos to being part of the moving revelation of where God wants us to be. Staying “in the momentum” is simply a radical way of being: it lurch us forward when waywardness seeks to become a distraction; when self-confidence seeks its own trajectory or when pride birth its own prejudices. To be “in the momentum” means for Christians to be in Christ. And being “in Christ” means you are headed somewhere-heaven.
Don’t settle to “stay in the moment”; try to stay “in the momentum” letting Christ take us beyond our frozen dreams and our religious flights.
