Thank You God!
This is what my Sabbath Day was like, yesterday. It was like a slowly flowing stream — calm, relaxed, refreshing itself. The magic word seems to be S L O W.
I confess, God, that I have spent many years addicted to my own adrenaline. I loved that last minute for that surge of adrenaline. Nature’s own cocaine? Part of the Superman motif. I was born around the time Superman was created — FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET! I’m smiling, God. That was before jet planes — before rockets orbiting earth — before Voyager II swept off past the solar system.
Oops! Sorry, God. You were asking What did I LEARN? I learned how slow and easy gets more done than fast and frantic. I didn’t MEAN to get anything DONE! It just sort of effortlessly happened. Almost easier to flow in and through it that to set it aside. How ODD.
Oh. Being connected with YOU was my goal. You helped me when I put You first. And I guess I must have put You first as I hardly remember what stuff got done. It was truly secondary.
Now You seem to be smiling! Smiling at my surprise at Your Delight in Helping — once I get out of Your Way. I really want to remember this, God! I want to continue putting You First! And I want to go slow — slowing down to enter Kairos — to enter Your Time.
