The world has slowed down. And so have I.
I’ve given extra time to listening—listening to my coronary heart, to the brand new season earlier than me, and to the One who loves unconditionally. In these moments, I commerce chaos for contentment. These are the moments when my steps sing in pleasure. These are the moments when my true, real, and sincere self involves be.
In stillness, I grasp simply how a lot I too typically run all through my days. I come to grasp how little I cease to catch my breath. This reality makes my coronary heart develop unhappy. It turns feeble as a result of I do know I’m not meant to dwell my life like this.
The increasingly I pray about my tempo, I come to just accept that it has led me nowhere. Within the busyness, I’ve solely discovered vacancy. However in slowness, I’ve solely discovered abundance. I’ve solely found promise. I’ve solely believed in increasingly grace.
Once I look again on my reminiscences, I solely want to look again on the sluggish, easy, and delicate occasions. I pray I solely ever select my peace over my plan. Now, there may be nothing extra useful to me than pursuing concord by way of heavenly affirmation fairly than worldly acceptance.
The world is at all times in fixed movement. And too typically, I mimic its wavering stride. I attempt to sustain with its uncertainty and imbalance, but discover myself failing in its midst each time. In nonetheless and quiet prayers, I come to honor how I used to be by no means meant to pursue something however pure, sincere, and heartfelt relaxation—the type that leads me to the trail I used to be at all times meant to stroll and the story I used to be at all times meant to dwell. Really, no good factor is rushed to exhaustion, so I shouldn’t both.
