“Life is not a race with men but a walk with God”
There was a time in my life when everyone around me seemed to be making great strides in their life’s pursuits and I felt stuck. I was pressured to play catch-up, but when God gave me the quote above, my perspective changed forever.
Take a look around you. Even in the limitations of the lockdown, you’ll see people who have achieved great lengths in their strides, and celebrate them we must, but we must never allow their achievements pressure us into premature delivery.
Many have lost precious seeds because they rushed to get them out while trying to play ‘catch-up’ with others. It’s okay to slow down, not under the guise of laziness and procrastination, but in the quest for excellence. So stop chasing men, walk with God!
His calendar for you is always best.
