Slow Down!!!

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.
