We are house-hunting.
We are awaiting pre-approval.
Realtors will not even show a house
unless you have this in hand.
Say a prayer, please.
There has been few fall foliage this year.
On my ride to look for houses I saw this.
It was truly a magnificent sight.
Then I came upon this.
God often speaks to me in a word,
a simple word.
On a back road to my daughter's,
a road that is not supposed to be busy, but is!
I was rushing, huffing and puffing
and was on the edge of road-rage.
I felt God speak into my spirit,
"Why are you hurrying?"
"You talking to me?"
"Why the rush?"
No Train Horn.
No warning??? No Train Horn???
"This is your warning, I said it first...slow."
When I hear the same message over and over on different days
written or spoken by different messengers,
I get the idea that God is conveying the message.
I often want to rush His will, rush His plan,
yes, rush this house-business.
Like Sarah, I've often failed God just by trying to
rush his plan.
I plunge ahead, creating my own event,
my own Bible study group,
my own business endeavor.
In an attempt to rush His will
I create my own miserable mess,
I get ahead of Him and miss His plan.
Once again, I'm reminded to rest and not rush,
slow down and not speed.
