I wrote the following inspired words down for myself. Maybe someone else can relate and needs the reminders. May God use these words in your life as He continues to do so in mine.
1. SLOW DOWN. Life is not a race. The one who runs the fastest does not get extra points or necessarily accomplishes more. However, it is very likely that if you continue to speed through life you’ll miss a whole lot more. Take care of yourself, spend time with your loved ones, be still and know that I’m God.
2. SETTLE DOWN. I see you down there stressing all the time. As if this world can’t go on without you. My friend, you worrying yourself into a frenzy changes nothing. But, it does lead to greater stress, higher blood pressure, and a person that is never at peace.
3. STAY THE COURSE. Remember, you don’t make up your own agenda. I put together specific plans for you when I knit you together in your mother’s womb. Listen to my voice, do what I say, and leave the results to me. I will take you further than you could ever dream or take yourself. Just let me lead the way and you stay focused on the cross.
As I’ve told you before my child, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
Never doubt I love you. I am always with you. And, I will continue to carry you through the ups and downs of this life. Slow down, settle down, and stay the course I’ve marked out for you.
Love, The God Who Knows You Inside & Out
