This issue has been coming up a lot lately for me--not just in my own life (and Tim's) but in the lives of many of my clients. In response, I've begun exploring some questions regarding this issue in my own life:
- How is your pace working for you? Is it life-giving or life-sucking, or somewhere in between?
- Who or what is in charge of the pace of your life?
- What would it look like to let God set your pace each day--regardless of circumstance?
- What's stopping you from choosing to go at His pace?
It's all about slowing down enough to notice His wind, I think, and make the brazen choice to catch it and go at the pace His Spirit sets. In the world, yes. But clearly not of it.
"The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit." (John 3:8)
