Why are we always in such a hurry? All we’ll find at the end of the current blazing inferno is another one. Could it be that because we allow urgency to distract us so effectively it’s the only weapon the enemy needs to sidetrack us?

There’s so much encouragement to be given, the need may be greater than ever before. Chances are good; you could use a little yourself. How about looking for the opportunity to lift someone up today? I’ll bet you find yourself uplifted as well.

This encouraged me this morning, again from E. Stanley Jones:

“If you look within you’ll be discouraged, if you look around you’ll be distracted, if you look back you’ll be paralyzed; But if you look at Jesus you’ll have peace.”

Don’t let the busyness of the world around you keep you from taking the Lord into every aspect of your day. Slow down enough to listen, He wants to share with you. The day God has planned for you is far better than the day you have planned for yourself. Don’t be afraid of getting off the beaten path and don’t get frustrated by interruptions that alter your well planned day. Chances are they are opportunities He has brought your way. Love those near you well.
