My computer is giving me slow mode this morning, meanwhile, I’m in fast mode (for what reason I have no clue). Either way, this morning I jumped out of bed and took off doing my daily morning tasks like it was a race.
A race is sometimes to beat my five year old to the punch. Or, in my case, the coffee…
He slept in this morning; however, and it gave me just enough time to get ready and start this blog post. Until…
My computer stopped responding. The whirling little circle kept telling me it needed more time. To be patient. Thank you for holding…you know the drill. When you are in (what feels like a race), and obstacles are in your way? It seems to make you grow even more impatient.
This morning I must remind myself that there is no race.
In fact, any time I feel pressured or pushed, it is time to cool down. Slow it down. Take a deep breath and think of those people who drive 5 miles per hour to the store. Be like them. Because meanwhile you’re behind them, can pass them quickly, and somehow you both pull into the store side by side anyways.
It doesn’t always pay to rush and I’ve learned over the years that rushing can cause pain in the long run. Things come with due time and in God’s hand—His time (for me) will always be the right time. And Amen to that!
Today Lord, remind us that life is not a race, but a journey. Help us to enjoy each and every moment. And to look to You for our direction throughout the day. Amen.
