When would you like to just pause?
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
From the moment our feet hit the floor, most of use have schedules to follow, places to be, people to see and things to do. Do we ever take the time to just pause?
Pause to listen to the trees wrestling
Pause to smell the flowers on the side of the road
Pause to skip a rock across the water
Pause to hug a child
Pause to watch the butterfly move gently from flower to flower
Pause to see the bee drink up the sweetness
Pause to breath deeply
Pause to consider the words before the leave the mouth
Pause to give a smile of encourgement
Pause to look at someone in the eyes so they know you truly see them
Pause to make funny faces
Pause to reminder yourself of your blessings
Pause to consider your next step
Pause to be in the moment
Pause to hear the heart of another
Pause to read a poem
Pause to jump in a puddle
Pause to play with a rollie pollie and remember your childhood
Pause to see what He has placed before you and jump at the opportunity
Pause to the voice of God and soak in His guidance
Pause to ask for His forgiveness
Pause to accept His grace
Pause to remember His mercies
Pause to give Him the Glory
I do not pause enough. Do you?
Lord help me pause today. Help me to recognize the pause moments you give me. Help me disconnect enough from “me” so I can pause and see others. Lord help me pause. Amen!
