Have you ever felt like you’re the tortoise and the hare in the same story? Is it possible for life to be both busy and slow all at the same time? That’s how mine has felt lately. I feel like I’m running so fast these days, but yet I’m going so slow! It’s kinda crazy. Because some things are a little slower right now, I’m trying to get so many other things accomplished… so I’m running, but I’m not sure if I’m getting very far. I’m praying for the Lord’s help; that I will organize my life in such a way that I honor Him in everything I do (and everything I don’t do). I’m praying for wisdom to know how to prioritize the things that are best and most important, and not get discouraged with the things that are left undone. I think there is a good lesson in this story- it’s the tortoise who wins the race because he planned his course and consistently “ran” toward the finish line, while the hare proud-fully goofed off thinking he could easily catch up and win. I think it better to be the tortoise!
“Slowly does it every time!” he said.
