Just Hurry Up...

Running Your race! Living from Glory to Glory Blog
 The Winner




Would you just hurry up!

People are driving like they are all on the way to the hospital;
With someone in labor in the back seat.

Everything we are doing now days seem like we are in a race.

I think of that story of the tortoise and the hare.
We all know how that ended;
We have this mentality that if we are fast or the first one;
We are the winner....
Wait a minute here, was it not the slow one who just kept
going in the right direction that won?

We see very little patience in our world today!
Being slower has been perceived as being a looser

If it takes a bit longer than a little bit of time it is wasting time.
I do not want to have to hurry with everything I do in a day.
For I may never pass this way again....

What are we missing when we find ourselves tired and stressed?
There is a peace that we should carry for all the world to see!


Have you had the feeling, like I want to just quit?
GOOD

Now, we can take a step back and resolved our hearts to go
At the pace God has given you.
Our purpose is not to be the first one to cross the finish line.
But rather be able to be counted on as to be present and available.

Now, that silly rabbit shot off that starting line like he was going to win the race.
But, because he did not pace himself, he grew tired and stopped to take a nap.
(Is the church sleeping or napping)

Believe me, there are days all I want to do is just stop and take a nap.
Nothing wrong with naps, if we are pacing ourselves;
And we keep ourselves on the narrow way and keep going on in,
The right direction...
We can't give up and stop running our race.
But rather let us keep a steady pace and enjoy all that we have,
Going on in our lives!

So let us not be silly rabbits!
If you have started something, finish it!

  2. Oh yes, how we need to slow down and be still and know that He is God. We are such an instant society and I too am guilty of wanting it down when God says, "Wait." Thanks always for giving us thoughts to think on, to slow us down long enough to hear God speak through the written word.

    Have a good weekend, Roxy.

  3. As I grow older, I have learned the joys of just slowing down and enjoying each blessed moment as it happens. It is the only way I can stay centered in Our Lord throughout my day... blessings Roxy :0)
