Take the Time!

burnoutwGod is always working in my life but sometimes I just have to slow down and pay attention. That is a part of why I like cycling, especially on a path. The freedom to ponder situations is so important for me. But it is also important to view things in light of Scripture and that means I have to be in God’s Word to get His perspective. I know that if I am unchecked by Scripture, I can muddle all sorts of things rather quickly.

The very moment I think my life is too complicated for contemplation I know I am desperately in need for some. Reflection always leads me to prayer and God adjusting my attitude towards a person or circumstance.

Feeling bogged down and out of time? Stop and pray for your perspective and the day. Don’t budge out the very thing that will give you precisely what you need to accomplish the task!

Preparations

It’s been a day, a week really, preparing for Easter Sunday in the many ways one might do that:

* travel arrangements
* menu planning
* food shopping
* egg dyeing
* wardrobe additions
* cleaning
* decorating

In all this busyness has there been enough consideration of The Cross, The Christ, The Crucifixion?

There is still time to contemplate the incredible exchange that took place.

+ His life was given for yours.

+ You are worth the sacrifice He made.

+ You are worth the breath He gave.

+ Your value is not in what you have done or who you are.

+ Your beauty and value is in the eyes of your Beholder, your Savior, your Risen Lord.
