I'm Still Here

It's been a long time since I posted here.  It has been a crazy few years and a lot feels like a blur.  Mostly I am thinking it feels like a blur is because I've been trying to rush by it all.  I keep getting the thoughts to hurry up and do this and get it done and then hurry up and do that and get it done.  Then when all is done I can relax.

See that isn't how it works and I am learning this.  I have been a hurry up kind of girl all my life.  But God is starting to reteach me (again because He has shown me this before) to slow down.  To enjoy moments, to enjoy the day, to obey His Holy Spirit throughout each day.  That is how to live, not rushing here and there and hurry up this and hurry up that.

I do wonder how much I have missed along the way by rushing through life.  It creates fear too, and worry, which does NO good at all.

So I am now reminded of my one word for 2014, and I still have a month and a half to be refreshed by this...


That is my one word.  He told me to unwind.  It's like I have wound myself up so much like a wind up toy and I need to now unravel it all and REST.  Sit.  Relax in Him.  Let Him work.  Stop hurrying.

Do you need to stop hurrying to finish out 2014?  Would you join me in unwinding and relaxing in Him?  What is He teaching you lately?
