Rush Rush

Young Black woman with hands completely covering face
There are a couple of things about living life on life’s terms that get me into trouble. At various times, it can seem like my life is just one huge blur of rushing from one activity to another. Then there are the times when I will want to do, or think I need to do, five or six different things all at once. Intellectually, I know it is impossible for me to do all of these things at once. But I try anyway. I juggle time, schedules, and tasks. I rush from one hurried activity to another. Then I find myself in such a state of confusion it feels as though my head is going to split open. At this point I become a living example of the poster child for stress. And, I also am sabotaging my recovery. It does not matter if my recovery is in its infancy or well-aged. At those times of confused frenzy, I am sabotaging my recovery.When I find myself in this state, it would be good for me to remember:

  • I have enough time, plenty of time to do whatever is God’s will for me.
  • There is never a need to rush.
  • God never requires me to rush and do whatever it is that God would have me do.
  • There is always enough time.
  • All I need to do is look at what is in front of me to do. That which I have time to do without rushing is God’s will for me at that Moment.

An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth.
Bonnie Friedman

Half of our life is spent trying to find something to do
with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

Will Rogers

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change,

 

The courage to change the things that I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference

Serenity Prayer

God is my Time Clock. God is my Scheduler.
God is my All-and-All. I have enough time. I have Enough Time.
