Growing up I embraced Nike’s tag line “just do it” as I like to see things happen, change, grow, develop. I love to see progress and transformation, especially in people’s lives.
Over the years this has served me (too?) well and been reinforced in work, as I volunteer and in ministry creating an ever increasing challenge in …. being.
Even when it comes to the inward transformation of ME, I do studying scripture, books, journaling, practice application and on and on and on. Some of this is good and needed, yet today as I sat journaling I have realized that in all my doing I have forgotten how to “be”.
I wonder if I have taken the scripture “be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only” too far? Sometimes we need to rest and meditate and allow God’s truths to infuse our being before acting.
So today I sit here perplexed, longing and knowing I need to “be” but totally at a loss of how to begin.
Would you take a moment or two to share your ideas and tips with me?
How do you rest, and just be?
