It’s a New Year and I’m in a Hurry

4 01 2012

Welcome to 2012!  How abbreviated did 2011 seem to you?  I mean, was it a full year…12 months…365 days?  I wonder sometimes.  The faster the years, months and days go by, the faster I feel like I live life.  I can be speeding in my car and really don’t know why because I am not running late.  I can tend to always walk fast or be in a rush to finish a project I am working on at home and really do not need to feel any anxiety to complete it.  Some years ago the group Alabama wrote a song about being in a hurry and not knowing why.  I’ve copied it below for you.

I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why
Don’t know why I have to drive so fast My car has nothing to prove It’s not new But it’ll do zero to sixty in five point two
I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why
Can’t be late, I leave in plenty of time Shakin’ hands with the clock I can’t stop I’m on a roll and I’m ready to rock
I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why
Oh, I hear a voice That says I’m running behind Better pick up my pace It’s a race and there ain’t no room for someone in second place
I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why.

Can you identify with those words as I do?  If so, check out these words: Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.  Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything…  (Ephesians 5: 19,20)   You gotta slow down to accomplish what God encourages us to do in those verses.  Let’s determine to be more intentional in this brand new year to slow down, listen to God and speak life to others, because… we can tend to be in a hurry and not know why.
