Embrace Today

Quit running, quit rushing, slow down, enjoy these moments.  Enjoy life right now. Today.

This is what I have to do to stop and listen. This is also what I hear when I stop and listen.

Chasing dreams, chasing success, chasing anything other than what He has for you is exhausting.  And you miss your life.  You miss today. And before you know it, you’re not chasing anymore, you’re wishing.  Wishing things were like they used to be. Wishing you had not chased your days away.  Days that turned into years.

Love your life. Find today’s dream and pursue that.  I’ll bet it’s easier to find than you think.

  1. Is this biblical? … YES ! Going after your dreams, easier than you think … YES. Putting your dreams off? Choosing not to step into what He has for you? I believe more costly … than we know, at the time. Good words. I hope things are going well in your journey with this little girl in Korea, and EMBRACing, or EMBRACE-ing, her into your lives. Thanks for this good post.
