Posts Tagged ‘The Road to Jericho’

God is slow and we must be slow. (1)


When we hurry, we miss much.


I wonder how many times, like the Priest and the Levite on the Road to Jericho, I have sped past God.


I always assume God is speeding ahead, thus I move full steam ahead.  


It is not until I find myself alone and bereft of His presence that  I realize I passed Him by a long way back.


God lives in the present.  He waits for me to draw near to Him.  


God waits for me in the present, not in the future.


When will I ever learn?


Be still and know that I am God ….” (2)
