I can’t stop thinking on a verse from yesterday’s reading,
day 21 in Proverbs.
The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness;
but of every one that is hasty only to want.
~ Proverbs 21:5
I’m often hasty, rather than diligent.
I may think I’m being efficient,
but the reality is
haste only leaves me lacking.
Haste makes waste.
Diligence takes time.
The Lord urging me over and over again…
Live slow. Breathe deep.
Take your time.
Be attentive, deliberate, purposeful
So, I’ll slow down.
No more pushing through to the next thing…
Life is deep in the small things,
and in times, in moments
that are prone to go unnoticed.
They are subtle.
They only seem small.
Like when a sudden bluster of wind
on an otherwise still day wraps us around,
I pray the small moments
make me pause,
stir my senses to really live each day
It’s the small things
that make life big!
Walking with Jesus,
