I I don’t know why I insist on thinking that once I finish a book, life will suddenly slow down. It didn’t the first time when I finished the Ezekiel study and it certainly didn’t this past week when Moses wrapped up! The books came, the study launched, I left the church, and life seemed to hit me like a whirlwind. (Or as we affectionately call them in Phoenix: a haboob, which is a dirty, dusty wind storm.) My week seemed suffocatingly busy. Now it’s Saturday night, my family is sleeping, I am alone with the LORD and my thoughts, and a funny thought struck me. The women at Desert Springs Community Church who have joined me for the next ten weeks on this journey with Moses traveled 80 years in 7 days. In the first week of their homework they started at Moses’ birth and worked their way up to his 80th birthday and his dramatic party with God at the burning bush. It made my life seem a little more manageable, my to do list a lot less important, and my relationships with those I love my everything. When generations behind tell the story of my 80 years on this earth I pray it’s not a litany of things I accomplished, but an emphatic declaration of how deeply I loved those around me. As Moses prayed in Psalm 90: “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom”. In the next 7 days I’m going to ask God to help me to surrender to His plans and purposes for my life. Somehow, I have a feeling that when I do, life will slow down.
