There are times when we may all get caught up in the whirlwind of life. We may have hectic schedules and feel we are doing everything just to catch up. We may get drawn into situations at work, church, or home that require more time than we first expected. As we rush to take the next step or to figure out what's coming next, we may get lost!
When we feel overwhelmed or rushed, we may not feel that we have the option of stepping back or slowing down, but that may be exactly what we need! Rushing ahead on our own may cause us to get lost in the activity of life. Instead of rushing and pushing ahead, we can stop and ask God for guidance. We also need to be still long enough to listen to His response. After asking God to show us the way and taking time to listen to God's answer, we need to choose to follow His plan for our lives, even if it means slowing down!
Take the time to stop and ask God for direction, then follow Him!
Thank You for knowing and being ready to give me direction. Help me to take the time to ask, listen to, and follow Your direction for my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
