Ever felt like you’ve set your life to the rhythm of rush? Me too.
Sometimes it takes stepping out of the rush to see things. Recently, I went to the Holy Land. It was a trip I’d longed to take for years. But as the day to leave marched closer and closer, I wished I’d scheduled it later—another time, a time when life didn’t feel so busy.
Exhaustion gnawed deep places in my heart, demanding me to slow down. But how? I’ve made my decisions and now my decisions have made me. Me — this shell of a woman caught in the rush of endless demands.
But the trip was booked, so I went. And I’m forever glad I did. In the Holy Land, busy took a break from chasing me. This trip forced me to “unrush,” and I discovered I like who I am so much better when I’m not set to the wrong rhythm.
I also learned so much about Jesus. His life. His decisions. His lessons.
Today, I’m sharing the most impactful lesson about unrushing that I learned over at (in)courage – will you join me? I have a feeling you might need a breath of fresh air in your schedule. Click here to read more.
