I know the feeling of rushing through life all too well. Pressing the fast forward button on the remote of life. Not living in this moment and instead living in the next. Wishing the days away. Procrastinating. Saying 'I can't wait' about 10 times a day in my head or out loud. Feeling like my yesterday and today memories are fading and blurring. Going too fast. I'm going to fast...too fast to slow down... I know I need to slow down.
I want to live in this moment. I want to put my foot down on brakes. I want to remember these days and keep these memories. This isn't going to last forever, and in the back of my head, in a dark, dark corner, I know it so well it makes me want to weep. So I'm going to live while I'm alive. I'm going to cherish the people I have. I'll remember that the best things in life aren't things. I know I'm going to miss these days, but I want to miss them as well as being fond of wonderful memories from good times and times spent with the people I love, instead of by without clear pictures of my past. Scars are apart of who I am. I'd rather feel something than nothing. My life is fulled with almost completely good stuff. I need to take time. To take time to be thankful I know Jesus Christ. To take time to be with this amazing family I've given. To take time to not lose my reward. To take time to learn from the Bible.
I pray that God will help me to slow down and live for Him, the way he wants me to live. My life is like short journey, and speeding on the highway will just make it go faster.
Stop. Slow down. Spend more time with God. Live today like this is the day you'll be remembered for. And love. Give and share love to everyone you meet. Let them see Jesus through you. Ask God what He wants you to do next. But don't skip years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds. Not a second.
