The Unhurried Life

It is the unhurried life that draws near.

It is in the quiet places that My voice becomes loud.

Hurry is the enemy of peace.

It is the enemy of a life that is pointed and strong.

It is the enemy of a life without regret.

A hurried life enjoys nothing and lacks inward direction, purpose and peace.

I will bring the important things into your life and you will know what those are.

If you are hurried, you will miss them.

Important moments, monumental moments, often look very small to a hurried life, but in eternity they are large.

If you continue in a hurried state, you will miss life.

I don’t often share personal things from my time with God, but I felt that this is something I wanted to share.  God has been speaking to me a lot about the hurried inward life.  We can be busy, but not be hurried and frantic.  This comes from taking care of our heart and not filling the empty places with busyness and being addicted to accomplishment and constant movement.  A non-hurried life will be busy with the right things.  As Dallas Willard said so well, “Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.”
