Fast Forward


Fast Forward

I don’t know about you but I am on fast forward today.  I started making lists recently and this has enabled me to get a lot of things done in a short amount of time.

My mind is buzzing.  I have this to do and that to do.  I have already done this and that too.: )

But in this hyper speed of activity, I have yet to “be still.”  I prayed to God.  I have memorized a verse or two.  But I did it all on the run (literally).  I sat down to read God’s Word but I gave it up after a chapter because I realized I was just reading words and not really paying attention.

I need to slow down and remember it is all about God!  Here are some examples of what I am talking about:  If I focus on my abilities, I will always feel overwhelmed and inadequate…if I focus on WHO God is and WHAT He has done, I will feel confident and secure.?  If I focus on what others say about me, I will feel either pride or pain…if I focus on what God says about me, I will feel appreciative and thankful. 

I need to slow down and remember it is all about God.  I need to settle down and hear what God has to say in His Word about life and His plan of salvation.   How about you?

As for me, I’m going to take a few minutes and relax with a good book, The Good Book, actually!

God bless you much!
