There’s you, rushing out the door, keys in hand, and someone is missing a shoe.
Yelling voices and missing wallets fluster you as the car almost backs into a closed garage door. Lungs deeply sigh, and then you floor it out the opened door. As your face hits the warm sun, you pause at the brilliant sky all around your humble home. Brakes are hit, voices are silenced for a moment, and you breathe out.
Rushing life never got anyone to a solid destination. Life flies by, blurred and loud as you forget moments that are meant to linger and sweet thoughts are flushed away with the fast forward button you carry on your sleeve.
Psalm 46:10 ESV
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
Living in an ever-busy and chaotic world can bring one down. We miss out on so much when our to-do lists and fast-paced lifestyles bring less fulfillment along with more commitment. We scramble to make sense of the lack of achievement when our calendars promise excitement.
When we forget to pause and place God in our lives ahead of wonderlust adventures and trophy child activities, we lose out on the true gifts that await us. A fulfilled life needs subsidence and not just a happy looking shell.
Taking a pause, letting the sunlight caress your face, and enjoying the depth of the blue sky that the Lord hand-made will bring more peace than a trip across town and back with flustered children and fast food bags in the middle of stuffed schedules.
You can have blessed assurance in the Lord when you take in His blessings while striving to keep His statutes first and foremost. All the rest will fall into place when you honor your Father who gave you the capability to create a playlist of life.You can have blessed assurance in the Lord when you take in His blessings while striving to keep His statutes first and foremost Click To Tweet
May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless[ his people with peace!
The Lord promises His gift of peace and grace to His children. This is the free gift in salvation. Pausing in the sunlight is only a small blessing compared to the multitude that follow upon the path of a believer.
