You never are.
It takes a fraction of a second for neurons to pass through the brain, so your perception of the "present" is actually the past.You're always "slightly off."
But there is good news.
God is eternal... which means He is with you in your past, present and future.
He always is.
So whether you're "in the moment" or "slightly off," you can be with Him.
Open up about where you've been, where you might be going and where you think you are.
Allow Him to speak to you about all of it, especially if His perspective is different than yours.
Be with Him.
"Be still and know that I AM God." (Psalm 46:10)
