I sit and look at my social media, I see so many of us are using this time wisely. We are interacting with our kids, we are reading, we are enjoying movie nights, we are exercising in nature, we are praying, we are meditating, we are listening to music, we are dancing, we are smiling, we are sad, we are worried and most of all we are TRUSTING GOD IN THE UNCERTAINTY STATE WE ARE IN!!!!
As I sit in quietness, God has been giving me insight of what’s happening around us. There was a time when we all was SO IN A RUSH FOR EVERYTHING!
We rushed to work- without spending any time with God –
We rushed to the fast food places to skip out on dinner. When the kitchen is where love is really made and yet we have forgot about all of that until now.
We rushed to business meetings staying late and only giving our families what was left of us.
We rushed to sport events and practices as our kids have had our schedules filled on weekends. As the weekend gets filled we forget to add Sunday mornings for God!
We have allowed social media and gadgets to control our kids. A way for us to not have to deal with them as we all try to figure out our busy lives. Now, God has placed us in our homes where we are listening to our kids. He has placed us home to share time with them because school accounts for most of their days. We have become the teachers in the past weeks. In tuned with our kid’s learning instead of making the teacher be the sole reason they learn anything.
We rushed to do everything except build our relationships with our spouses- Everything has been more important than what God has brought together- He has forced us to share our homes with our better half again.
God has slowed down everything with this Pandemic!!! He is showing us what’s more important than what we actually thought was important.
We haven’t heard about any babies getting killed, no police brutalities, no racial insensitivity, no amber alerts going off, no trafficking, no murders happening, and nothing that the world reports! I’m not saying it’s not happening but God has put a silence to it all!!!
In these past few weeks, we have learned that God is so POWERFUL THAT HE IS SHOWING US THIS IS HIS WORLD! EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS! 😊🙌🏽 WE CANT RUSH ANYTHING ANYMORE- WE HAVE TO WAIT ON GOD AND BE STILL! HE CREATED EVERYTHING IN A TIMELY MANNER AND ORDERLY FASHION! WE HAVE TAKEN IT UPON OURSELVES TO RUSH EVERYTHING!
God has giving us TIME AGAIN!!!!
Time to be active with your family
Time to teach our kids without depending on others. Everything is learned in the home first.
Time for husbands and wives to get their homes back in order
Time to get our kids back in order
Time to be in sync with your abilities and gift
Time to be creative
Time to think about what’s the next move for you and your family
Time to reflect on your life
Time to talk with your friends
Time to talk with your family
Time to smile and laugh with our family
Time to pray and meditate on his word
Time to cook dinner for your family
Time to spend countless hours with your kids
Time to save money
Time to understand our homes are just as good as anything in this world, if not better!
Time to fill your brain with necessary things to survive in this world
Time to be grateful for what you have and what you don’t have
Time to save a moment for God!!!!!
In all this, I think God is saying, UNDERSTAND TIME MATTERS AND YOU CANT GET IT BACK! So slow down and appreciate every minute you have with those that matter most! Slow down to make sure we all have time for him as we schedule our busy lives upon the worldly THINGS! Thank you God for giving us TIME AGAIN!
