Over the hump of the week and as I think back on the events of the past few days and all the rushing around I did, I’m reminded of some words of King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 9:11. It goes like this:
“The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.”
Lots of wisdom in that. All my rushing doesn’t get any more accomplished, just keeps me out of breath. Then I have to remember the tortoise and the hare. It’s better to go at a steady pace than in jumps and starts. Now that I’ve said that, hope I can remember to comply with my own advice.
God gives each of us the same amount of time each day. Yet not everyone gets the same amount accomplished; sometimes lack of good time management and planning. And some days it is just plain interruptions. And yet somedays, it is in those interruptions that God’s still small voice is heard loud and clear. He is sometimes in the interruptions, perhaps just to get our attention.
God, help us to deliberately seek You out. Interrupt us if You must, be let us listen and heed what You have to say to us. In Jesus’ name.
In His service,
