Getting off the Merry Go Round

Ever have days where you feel like the everyday seems, well, boring?

Crazy busy?

Why-am-I-doing-this?

Never ending?

 

A spinning circle of busyness, appointments, trips, errands, here and there.

 

Yeah, me too. 

What about, just for a moment, it all, 

STOPPED. 

And, in that little glimpse of quiet, of calm admist the storm, you hear His still, small, voice.

" Find your Refuge in Me. Peace that passes all understanding. Calm. Joy Peace."  

Remember that feeling? His perfect peace that surrounds when everything else around seems like the spinning will never stop.  

I find that the closer I am with Him, the easier it is to shut the crazyness of the world out, and let Him lead my moments, my day, the times with my children, how we spend our time, our focus. 

When my gaze in on Him, my view of eternity is so much clearer. So close I can almost taste it. I see the world with a different lens. 

With a view of ETERNITY.

"I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. 11He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. 12I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one's lifetime;…"  Ecc. 3:10b-12

So will you join me today, in just being still?

Even for a short moment, giving your day, your time, your moments to Him. To the One who created time and space, and gives days and seasons, and life. If I focus my time, which really isn't mine to begin with, how much glory am I giving Him today? 

 

Just a little thought as the Merry Go Round pauses, will you and I get off of it?
