Always Moving

Here we are in a world that is always moving. It seems that everything continues to go faster and faster. As things get faster the more impatient we become. It creates a desire for everything to be give to us instantaneously. While applying for jobs as the school year comes to an end I have noticed that it is a process that takes time and effort, it is a tiring process. A process that I wish could be done in an instant but rather it takes time and perseverance. It requires motivation. It is not something that will be handed to me without work.
The process has reminded me that just because society is always moving in multiple directions so fast I have to take the time to slow down. Not just with my applying to jobs but slow down and take in what is going on in my daily life. To take note of the important things in my life. Not to always be on the go. I need to slow down even when the world around me is trying to move faster and faster.

The world around us is moving so fast, we have to slow down in order to capture the different moments of our lives.

There are so many things that can get in the way of your trust in a God that provides. It seems so often I try and take a lot of things into my own hands, thinking that if I have control over every situation it will go as planned. I fall into thinking that my planning is the best way to do things and I get run down. I go and go and go and that leads me to be worn out and uncharitable. God is calling us to trust in him and to allow him to help us each and every day.
As I near the end of my time in college it is very clear to me that there is a plan for what I am doing next. At this point I do not know all of the details but I am looking forward to what is to come. It's exciting and scary all at the same time. I guess that is what the unknown is. In the process of my search on what to do next year I am going to try and be mindful that God is going to place before me the resources to see his plan. There has never been a moment of transition that God has not has his hand right in the middle of what was going on. Many times I did not see this tell after, so why  not trust right now. I must come to God with an open heart and rest..trusting in his plan!
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
