Rush Rush Rush…Hurry Hurry Hurry


Psalm 127:1-2

Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
It is vain for you to rise up early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.

Rush, Rush, Rush, Hurry, Hurry, Hurry

scampering from here to there, doing this and that,

and for what?  For What?

I was doing that this morning, getting reading for some time away at the beach.  But I was miserable preparing for some peaceful rest and quiet.  I remembered this passage of Scripture about how it is vain to rush around, when God gives to His children even in their sleep.  I was pursuing a peace of my own making, when I could just settle down here, and wait before Him to bring this peace that eludes me.  I was rushing around getting my house in order, barking out orders to the ones I love and treasure, so that I had them rushing around too.  Not only had I deprived myself of peace, I had deprived them as well.   I will seek the Lord’s peace only this moment, and I will ask the forgiveness of those whose peace I disturbed.    Yes, I have things to do, but…I can do it in peace.   King Jesus, I never saw you rushing around like a crazy person, could You please teach me how you did this?  You changed the world in such a short lifetime.  I know You are God, and I am mere woman: but I am Your woman, filled with Your Spirit.  I want to be like You in every way I can.  I want to be Your child of purpose.  I love how Your Word teaches me:

 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Phil. 2:1-8)

Yeah, that’s it Jesus!  Make me like that.  Make me like You Precious Jesus, make me more and more like You.   I am a women in need of Your Extreme Makeover.  Let’s do this.  Amen!
