I need to breathe
I cannot run all day long jumping from one thing to the next. I need space in between to breathe. I find God gets lost in the busyness. There is a scripture I have been meditating on; "For thus says the Lord God, Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strengh. Why is it when life gets busy and I feel like I have opportunity to catch up on things, God seems to want me to stay at such a slow steadfast pace. When I get opportunities I want to run like the wind to get stuff done, I do have 2 young children. But God doesn't seem to think that way. Sometimes I feel like going at a "God pace" it takes forever to get stuff done. But everytime I'm like "Ok, some time is cleared up, ready, set go; I need to clean, organize, throw stuff out, give stuff away, catch up on work,................then God says something like "You are troubled about many things" or "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strengh. God doesn't really allow me to move quickly in anything if I'm following His leading. That's just me. He desires me to move about in a restful way and for quiet and confidence to be my strength. I had to stop this afternoon and thank God that He wants to bless me with a life the is restful. Jesus told His disciples that His yoke was easy and His burden was light. He says to "learn from Him." He says take His yoke upon us and learn from Him. Jesus what do you really mean by that? If Jesus yoke is easy and His burden is light, why do we carry such heavy burdens as believers? Just curious. I really want to live by the word of God. But if I am carrying heavy burdens and walking around yoked up all tight then I'm definitely not walking in the spirit. The bible walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. I guess I better get to walking and stop running.
