The Lord directs our steps,
so why try to understand everything along the way? Proverbs 20:24
I had coffee with a friend recently, and she shared some wise advice- time is in God’s hands… don’t rush Him.
Don’t rush Me.
Yeah, I just started singing that ol’ Taylor Dane song…
I sang that line over and over in my head as I walked yesterday evening. I could taste fall in the air! But I found myself longing to be at the end of the street where I could see the sunset more clearly- so I began to jog.
Much to my dismay, after my rushing down the street, my view wasn’t any better there. As I got closer to the edge of the neighborhood, the trees covered more of the sky. So then I turned around and went back to my house.
By the time I got there, the clouds were blazing with beauty. Oh, if I could only be content to stand still…
All I needed to do was wait.
Don’t rush Him.
Enjoy the journey.
The sun rises and sets in His timing.
And don’t forget to look up while you’re walking 🙂
Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Psalm 119:133
