Why slow down and unplug {more}:

‘They say time is money, but that’s not true.

Time is life.

And if you want the fullest life, you need to find fullest time.

God gives us time. But who has time for God?

This makes no sense.

Life is not an emergency. Life is brief and it is fleeting but it is not an emergency.

Emergencies are sudden, unexpected events — but is anything under the sun unexpected to God?

In Christ, urgent means slow.

In Christ, the most urgent necessitates a slow and steady reverence.

Life at its fullest is this sensitive, detonating sphere, and it can be carried only in the hands of the unhurried and reverential — a bubble held in awe.

Life is dessert — too brief to hurry. You don’t wolf it down.

And the thing is: Hurry always empties a soul. Hurry makes us hurt.

And maybe it is the hurt that drives us on?

For all our frenzied running seemingly toward something, could it be that we are in fact fleeing—desperate to escape pain that pursues?

And this, this is the only way to slow time:

When you fully enter time’s swift current, when you enter into the current moment with the weight of all my attention, you slow the torrent with the weight of you all here.

You only live the full life when you live fully in the moment.

And when you’re always looking for the next glimpse of God’s glory, you slow and enter and time slows. Weigh down this moment in time with your full attention —

and the whole of time’s river slows, slows, slows….”
