So, I got sick again last Friday, the day after the launch of our World Changers Interview Series. And whenever I get sick, I ask myself, "Why?"
This time, the answer was exhaustion. I really pushed myself these past few weeks and pressured myself to make the blog grow. No matter how many blog posts I write, no matter how many times I remind myself, and no matter how many times other people tell me, I can't seem to get past "rushing" for things to succeed.
Well, last Friday night and the whole day of yesterday, I finally got time to rest and to reassess my life. Why am I always rushing for things to happen right away? Why am I so desperate to succeed right away? Honestly, I still don't know the answer. So I guess I'll just tell you when I finally do.
For now, I'll leave you with three realizations, two bible verses, and a question.
- Whenever you're sick, ask yourself why you're sick. God has a message for you in your sickness. For me, it's realization number 2.
- Slow down. Take it easy. Don't rush. Enjoy life. Enjoy your relationships!
- When things are not yet happening in your life, maybe it's not yet the right time. Maybe you're not yet ready for them.
Two Bible Verses:
Here's the bible verse I read this morning. Its message for me was, God is still preparing me for the greater challenges when I do finally succeed.
"He will remove these nations before you little by little. You cannot finish with them quickly, lest the wild beasts become too numerous for you." – Deuteronomy 7: 22 NAB
Here's another bible verse that says God's perfect time will not disappoint. It will not be late.
"For the vision is a witness for the appointed time, a testimony to the end; it will not disappoint. If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late." – Habakkuk 2: 3 NAB
If there are some things in your life you're rushing to happen right away, why?
