You know, when everything just seems to move too slow. Why can't we just do it, get it done and out of the way? Why is it that others don't seem understand the urgency, the need to move quickly?
And yet... sometimes I need a Pause button.
When everything is going far too quickly, I need something that will give me a chance to stop, take a breather, and think it through. Take stock, make good decisions and not simply 'knee-jerk' reactions...
And then, I suppose, while I am thinking about it, I'd like a Rewind button.
It's so I could go back to a situation, and do it differently (somehow). Or perhaps I'd simply go back and experience it all again, but knowing what I know now...
But I don't have any of these controls. And life unfolds, one day at a time. We have one life to live.
Lord, give me wisdom.
Psalm 1: 1-3 (NIV)
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
