Sitting Still…

I am a compulsive mover. Why sit still when I can move forward, press on, finish a project, silence a thought with swift reaction and decision. I hate, more than anything, to go back and visit a lesson learned or a path walked. Like a funny little child I shake my stubborn head and ask to be taken somewhere else. “No progress is being made, God, unless I’m seeing things I’ve never seen before, passing landmarks and situations that are new. THIS is old, or have you forgotten? I don’t want to be here. Remember the last time? I didn’t like it so much then… and I’m sure all the lessons are learned, the concepts grasped.” How often I need reminding – sitting still, going back, taking time, revisiting – are more important than a task accomplished. Would God take me places I didn’t need to go?

    How true! How hard it is to sometimes be still for us goal oriented people. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
