SLOW THE RUSH
by: Ashlie Oestreich
We live in a society filled with rush, full schedules, overcommitments, the push to say “yes”, and guilt when we say “no”. In our accountability groups, we are beginning week three of the PURGE session, and this week our topic the Calendar Purge. So many of us want to pursue God’s call on our lives but our calendars are so packed that we have no room to hear His voice, be led by His spirit, be filled, and then walk into the opportunities He has for us. We are often exhausted and unfulfilled. Can you relate?
Would you pray with us that His plans, not ours would be established in our lives so that we can run the race? So that our BEST selves can emerge — the women He’s called us to be?
“The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” – Proverbs 16:1-3
