I’ve been trying to slow my life down. My new kid really helped me with this. Especially as I couldn’t go on the spring break mission trip and now my wife said no to me going to India on a mission trip this summer. I need to slow down. The past three years I’ve been going going going. Have you ever felt like that? I just read an article by Rick Warren at pastors.com called “How to slow your life down.” I’ll sum up the article but then you can jump over and read it:
1. Learn Contentment – Philippians 4:12 (NIV): “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.” (I’ve had a really hard time doing this)
2. Obey the fourth commandment
3. Pause and pray before deciding
4. Learn to say no
5. Trust God’s timing
What have you done to slow down?
