I love it when God instructs to move quickly:
“…have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.” Joshua 6:5
“Don’t delay. Rush in and do what I’ve commanded you to do,” He says.
I would prefer these instructions. “I’m your girl, God. Send me in. Let me rush the city.” But rarely do I get these orders. Most of the time my marching orders come painstakingly slow. Perhaps He knows that I’m a run ahead girl, and that I need to learn to slow down.
So what if I looked at life’s peripheral, seeing more than a dichotomy of rushing and waiting?
More like dancing as life sings.
Sometimes the tune is a fast beat where big steps are required. Other times, the melody is slow where small steps are in order.
And on days when I’m called to stand in place, I simply sway to the music.
Knowing Who is in charge of the songs being played.
As life sings, will you enjoy the music?
