Life in a Hurry

by | May 28, 2013 | me, schedule

Life seems to be in such a hurry, doesn’t it?

Kind of like the cars that fly by our home on our gravel road. Tonight when I was walking, a truck flew by me and threw up rocks towards me…and I was even walking on the other side of the road! One of these days something serious is going to happen with people going so fast on these rural roads. I just pray my family isn’t involved. What is the speed limit on these roads anyway? (I just googled it…the speed limit on our state’s gravel roads is 50 mph. Unbelievably unsafe. I’m in shock!)

I’m getting distracted. That’s not what I want to share here tonight. I’m going to be transparent with you in this post. As I was on my walk this evening, I found myself hurrying. And when I realized it, I thought, “Why am I hurrying?” I didn’t need to be in a hurry. I wanted a nice workout out there, but I felt like I was racing the clock…and there was no need to.

Then I got to thinking, am I usually in a hurry? I think I am. I’m in a hurry in the mornings to try to fit everything in before I leave for work…my Bible and prayer time, my workout, my breakfast, shower and get ready and then fly out the door.

I’m in a hurry at work…trying to get everything done that needs to be done.

I’m in a hurry to get home after work, to be in a hurry here at home. Dinner, laundry, cleaning, gardening, blogging, etc.

Do I ever sit down an relax? I’m realizing that I don’t very often. I always seem on the go.

I think God is giving me a wake up call (again). I do not need to be in a hurry.

Psalm 46:10 reads…

He says, “Be still, and know I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Could this be from my desire and tendency to strive, to achieve, to accomplish? I’m thinking so. So how do I change this? I don’t like being in a hurry all the time, and I’d love time to just be still.

I will be taking this to God, and asking Him to help me with this. I never read that Jesus hurried from one place to another in scripture. I doubt God wants me to do it either. And I’m thankful He’s brought it to my attention today.

I’ll keep you posted on this. Thanks for allowing me to be real with you here tonight, and thank you for not judging me. I look forward to seeing what God will do with this, and I look forward to being still! 🙂
