Bury the hurry.

I’m starting to realize that I am often in a hurry. Being in a hurry is different than having a sense of urgency.

To have a sense of urgency is to be ready, prepared and aware. Being in a hurry is rooted in a lack of preparedness, a lack of trust and worry.

God is always on time. He’s never late. He is never worried. God‘s got this.

What’s the rush? Relax. Slow down. Take it all in. Live in the moment. Be present. Take the late checkout. Enjoy the ride. Smell the roses. Watch the sunset.

Life goes fast enough without always being in a hurry. Pause. Be still. Reflect on why you are always in a hurry.

Hurry is a symptom of other issues in your life. Are you ill-prepared? Overextended? Running in fear from someone, some thing or some possible circumstance? Procrastinating? In the habit of scurry and worry?

Take a “chill pill”. Bury the hurry before it buries you.

(Inspired by Proverbs 19:2. “… hasty feet miss the way!”)
