Pause

Here in Wisconsin, as the snow makes its arrival, I’m alarmed that it is already Fall. With each passing day, I find myself increasingly aware that one day I won’t experience these seasons any longer. My clock will stop ticking, and what I have done up until that point will be all I have to leave the world. The more I realize this, I catch myself wanting to make decisions with a sense of urgency. I want to squeeze everything out of the life I have left.

“Better a patient person than a warrior,

   one with self-control than one who takes a city.” (Proverbs 16:32 NIV)

However, even though life moves swiftly, when possible, it is imperative to pause and listen for God’s direction. There is no decision that needs to be made without God. As we move through our daily tasks, sometimes habitually and sometimes quickly, let’s not forget to pause and listen for God’s still, quiet voice.

“Your word is a lamp for my feet,

  a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105 NIV)
