Seems like there is not a day that word doesn’t describe me. Can you relate?
Society demands rush. Every minute is maximized. There are more things to do and opportunities to pursue than our 24 hours a day allow.
I know that rushing doesn’t produce my best. Rushing through life causes me to miss moments, significant moments. In my rushing I miss sweet moments with family or friends. In my rushing I avoid an important conversation with a staff member. In my rushing I overlook the person who needs a listening ear. In my rushing I lose touch with my soul and what God may be trying to speak to me.
In her new book, The Best Yes, Lysa challenges us to slow down our hurried souls to find God’s best yes in our lives.
“If we want to hear from the Lord, we must confess that sometimes we walk right past the Lord’s instruction and set ourselves up to miss His direction. If we want His direction for our decisions, the great cravings of our souls must not only be the big moments of assignment. They must also be the seemingly small instructions in the most ordinary of moments when God points His Spirit finger saying, go there. And in doing that, we are companions of God with eyes and ears more open, more able, more in tune with Him.”
Where do you need to slow down today to be more in tune with God?
