Eyes Wide Open

eyeswideopenMost of us live life on the run. Jumping from one job to another, one meeting to another, one practice to another, school, activities, etc… and many of us have all of these things going on in ONE life!

Have you ever said you will get to something (working out, eating right, spending more time with a loved one, etc) when life finally slows down?

How’s that going for you?

Life rarely slows down on it’s own, in fact most of life and all organisms drift toward complexity. I don’t know about you, but simplicity does not come easy for me… I have to be intentional about it.

Intentionally slowing down to make room for what matters!

Take some time this week to bring simplicity into your life. Slow down, take a breadth and enjoy the people around you. Family, friends, neighbors, co-workers… whoever you find yourself around this week take in the God moments and see if maybe just maybe God wants to join you in the workings of your daily life.

I’m willing to bet if you intentionally take the time to SEE whats going on around you, HEAR what others are REALLY saying, FEEL what others are feeling you will find some moments to join in what God is already actively doing around you.

  1. This could not be more appropriate to my situation. I’m wrapping up a week in Nicaragua where I was forced to slow down. Our mission group stops and eats all three meals together and my phone has been on airplane mode since we lifted off in the states. It’s been great! It makes me realize how fast I was going at home. Change is priority when I get back, for sure!
