Do you ever stop to think about how quickly time is passing? Do you ever stop to wonder what little things you might be missing out on? I think too many of us get so busy with our lives that we forget about what's important in life.
Here are my thoughts on this. God gave us life, and the option to live how we choose. So many people live in the way of the "WORLD" that they forget about the little things God gave us. When I say in the way of the world, here's what I mean. We get so busy with life, going to work, going home, eating, watch t.v., buy the latest gadgets, get a better car, ect. We live a life of trying to keep up with everyone around us (materialistic). This is the way of life for "Most" people. This is NOT how I wanted to be living my life. Nor is it the way I wanted my children to live theirs.
What would happen if you chose to live life following God? I think people take more time to explore their surroundings. Stop to "smell the roses" so to speak. They go to work, come home, eat dinner as a family, play with the kids (if they have them), talk with their spouse, help others where it is needed, live a life where others matter more then themselves. They love all (even if it's hard to do), dislike actions of people but love them for who they are (not what they do), forgiving, loving, kind, respectful, and more. THIS IS THE WAY I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE!!!!!!
I have found as I'm going on my journey that so much of me has changed. I am finally becoming the person I always wanted to be. I'm not hateful, deceitful, inconsiderate, stressed, worried, lonely, ect. I find that I have more peace within me, and around me. I have more patience, kindness, love, more thoughtful of others, and much much more. I take the time to "stop and smell the roses." I have made some awesome friends who are their for me and my kids. In fact they are there for anyone who happens to need them in one way or another. I am very blessed to have these people in my life. I thank God daily for bringing them into my life at a time when I needed it most.
I know I want to slow "My" life down a bit. I want to actually watch my children grow. To be part of helping them grow. I want to take the time to enjoy what God has created for all to see. How many times do you thank God for the birds and the trees? What about the sky, or the weather, or clouds? What about the oceans, or food you eat, or clothing you wear? Do you take time to just sit and watch God's creations around you? If you do, that's awesome. If you don't, WHY NOT? God is awesome. God is patient. God is kind. God is LOVE!!!!! God is powerful and can change your life in ways you never imagined.
These songs comes to mind as I write this. I hope you enjoy listening to them. May God bless your life in ways you could never imagine.
