Hurry Up

Honestly, it really should be slow down bruh. You are moving way too fast.
When I think about my life, I’m at my worst when I’m in a hurry. I’m more likely to become irritable and frustrated. I can think of several moments in which, I was running late and now I’m frustrated sitting at a red light, hoping it will change immediately so I can go.

Hopefully, no one gets in front of me driving slow, because then I’ll speed around them to “make-up time” and become even more frustrated when I’m stuck at the next red light with that same car again.
In those moments where I’m feeling rushed because I’ve double booked or took too long getting dressed – what I’m learning (it’s a process) to do is to slow myself down and enjoy those moments instead of spending time frustrated, wishing I’m somewhere – where I’m not. My frustration of wanting to be somewhere quicker, is not going to help me get there any faster. 🙄
I can tell when I’m running through life full speed because I’ll start losing or misplacing things. This year, I told myself, I’ll slow down and not rush through life. I recently read a devotion in the Bible app and it talked about how Jesus never rushed to do anything. In fact, he slowed down several times to pray or even delayed his arrival – while it may appear he was late in our natural eyes, he was on divine time, perfect arrival!

So, when we are rushing through life, take time to slow down, relax and release the stress of rushing.

“Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬
