Life is NOT an emergency!

I am just as guilty as the next woman. I rush from place to place, from commitment to commitment not stopping to take time and really see what is around me. I complain because I don’t have time for this or that and then wonder why I don’t feel fulfilled in my life. I say one thing and mean another (that’s right – I’m human – shocking I know!). And then, God shows me His glory in the small things of life..those moments that you can never get back…

And I am reminded to “Be Still and know that He is God” (Psalm 46:10) because “His lovingkindness is better than life! (Psalm 63:3)

Sometimes you have to hold on tight – because life happens fast even when you are not looking!

Sometimes you have to just roll up your britches, dig in your heels   and wait for the waves Рeven when the water is freezing!

God has given us the chance to enjoy today. So no matter where you are in life and how crazy or messed up life may seem, remember, living life does not require an ambulance to get through it. Sometimes it might just require the brakes!
