You might see the title, Slow Down, and think I'm talking to all of you crazy teenage drivers out there. Yes, Katie Nixon, I'm talking to you! ;) But, I'm actually talking about me. Not about my driving abilities, although I have been known to put the petal to the metal, but about my life. This week, as many of you have experienced, has been a blizzard of a time. Literally. My husband and I put a yard stick outside our front door, and at one point it was buried with snow! I have been forced to slow down. With the roads being iced over, businesses closed, and sonic happy hour not available, I have been forced to stay home. I have had to slow down, relax, and just breathe! Sometimes I think God has to create a snowpocalypse in order to get my attention. It's as if He says, "Courtney, quit sprinting all day long and realize that I will carry you."
What about you? Are you still running? Do you need to just sit with Him for a while? Maybe you are running from Him. I will let you in on a little secret. You can't outrun our Lord. He continually pursues you, is chasing after you, and wants to be your everything. Slow Down! The light is not green.
