Pause

When would you like to just pause?

1 John 4:1

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!
