Find the Pace of Grace

Many fear missing out, so they pick up the pace, thinking speed is the way to run the race. But in the fast pace, we miss so many things, for the enemy is driving us to do more, be more, screaming inside of us faster, faster, more, more. So, we set another goal, we push, we strive, we struggle, and we do not realize it is all the result of an internal fear of missing out. Not realizing, that in our striving, in our speed, we miss out, for God is not in a hurry. He is actually inviting us to slow down, to seize the day, to enjoy the moment. Psalm 46 says, when everything around you is in a hurry, screaming tragedy, trouble, hurry, the Lord says, in verse 10 “Be still and know that I am God.” The greatest gift we can give ourselves and others is the ability to slow down and be in the moment. This is how we don’t miss anything, because we learned to embrace the God who is our everything.
