Moving Through Time – At God’s Pace

In this season, I find myself gliding through time observing and watching the moments- without an internal presumption of want to know or need to know. Often there is little interaction as situations swirl around me. It seems I am restrained from fully seeing but instructed to just keep on moving, keep on observing. Don’t speak…….yet.

I was always in a hurry in times past. Where am I going? What does this mean?  I loved to move to my own beat, my own sound. I always wanted to see and to know, NOW. I grabbed each moment and formed a life picture, in my own wisdom and strength.

Remind myselfLately, God slows me down and says, “Enjoy the journey and be amazed!”

Moving along what seems to be a slow conveyor belt, I adjust myself to this slower speed, taking in all the details I would miss if I determined to form time my own way. Anointed by the hand of God, time itself only lays down bits and pieces of the journey. I apprehend moments with a sense of awe and wonder. As discontent and frustration leaves me, life is getting a bit easier. Funny to say that now, in a time when chaos abounds throughout the earth. Yet inside myself, I am slowing down to see and to know what is behind the facade of the times.

He is not giving me the full picture. It’s not supposed to be that way. I see a little bit here and little bit there, trusting Him every step along the way.

Peace settles into the journey displacing any confusion or fear. Slowly, time reveals the beauty of moments, one at a time, forming a picture of fullness right before my eyes. Ah! Now I see. Now I know. Enjoy the journey in Holy Spirit.

ListenGliding through time is necessary in a fast-paced world that is built on a chaotic shallow foundation. I don’t fight this. I want to go deeper in a revelation of Jesus Christ. I am in a hurry. He is not.

Relish this time! Savor it. Don’t waste it.

What transformation is taking place within me? An increased sensitivity to Holy Spirit. Wisdom to discern and interpret the times. To know when to move, when to be still. When to act instead of react. How to move in sync with Jesus in time in Holy Spirit. And…so much more.

  1. Love the quote. I’ve often found myself wishing to be more like the masses. And then realizing it makes me miserable. And many of them lead lives of quiet desperation. Someone said that before me, I think:).

    • That’s true, so true. And something else has been on my mind…….the fact that God continues to transform us no matter what age we are at – 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and on. In my own life, there is still a nudge each and every day to just be me.
