My heart has been so reminded of this thought as I went back through my posts….I had every intention of posting each of the 31 days but as I look back I am 9 days short. You see I committed to this challenge of writing for 31 days by a group of incredible writers and God spoke so deeply to my heart about Embracing God’s Pace. It is a topic that I have battled with, one that I have been desperately trying to wrap my life around because I am tired of rushing through my life and missing so many beautiful things that God has placed in front of me.
As I started to write these 31 days I began to become very aware of my pace…and truth be told there were days that were so out of control that I never got the chance to write. Those lost moments were ones that I desperately needed to have, it may sound a little backwards but without those lost mosts the message would have been lost on me. Embracing His pace doesn’t mean that everything you do will be perfect or successful, it does however mean that it will be done His way, in His time.
I know over the last month that He has taught me immeasurably more than I planned when I went seeking His pace. He has gifted me with the ability to give myself grace and let go of what doesn’t get done. God has changed my mind through all of this, He has given me hope that it doesn’t have to be productive all time, that His greatest peace is often found in the stillness and saying no to things that are not important.
Thank you for being with me, thank you for reading these words that God has placed on my heart.
Thank you for allowing me to share my heart with you.
