Don't Rush

Life teaches us many things. One of the lessons that I have learned personally is this: “don’t rush.”
I tend to want to hurry through each day. I seem to like rushing into all of my circumstances and situations. As if my pushing on it or through it will make it move faster. That never works for my benefit. Learning how to flow with the pace of what is happening around me has been a learned skill. Some things must take their course. 

You don’t rush a baby. Whenever possible, it will be 9 months to develop fully.

You can’t rush a seedling. Pulling on it to make it grow faster will cause it to die.

You can’t rush the tide. It must go all the way out before it will begin to come all the way back in. And here is what is true: the tide always comes back.

 You may think that it will never get any better, that situation could never change and you are simply doomed to be miserable the rest of your life. Don’t buy into that lie! It's time to change your thinking. Be patient. Things will change...they ALWAYS do! I'm praying for the tide to change for you! Don’t rush it.
