There Is No Need To Rush
Sometimes I think that the things that put me in a state of hurry, are things that aren’t even entirely necessary in the first place.
I recently fell and hurt myself. I had had a very full day and was getting ready to leave the house for the last of the day’s activities. I had all the kids ready and waiting for me in the car. As I headed out the door I decided that I should run back in for a phone charger. As I rounded the corner of the kitchen into the dining room, I tripped head-first over the dog gate. I laid there on the floor in pain and disbelief, and I analyzed the situation and its severity. After a few moments passed and I realized I was ok, I hobbled back to the car and headed out for the night. We had a great time and as I thought about it, I laughed at the fact that I hadn’t even needed the phone charger, the very thing that had made me hurry. If I could have avoided my hurry, I could have avoided my hurt.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Sometimes I need to remind myself that if I was aligned more evenly with God, my life wouldn’t be as laborious and burdened as it feels. I have a tendency to add more and more to my life, to my responsibilities and schedules, without thinking about the strain it causes me and my family. Do you find yourself doing the same? I find myself in a hurry all the time just to keep up with the things I keep adding to my life.
I would love to encourage you, as well as myself to yoke up with God and stop adding unnecessary busyness to our lives! His burdens are light, He will give us rest and most of the stuff that we are in a hurry to do, doesn’t need to be done.
Koti has an amazing “get it done” attitude. She is fearless and phenomenal, all wrapped up into one package. She will take on any task and work endlessly until it is completed. She sees a need within LAUGH and immediately starts figuring out how we can best accomplish it.
Koti is the creativity and humor behind our media memes. She knows the power of reaching women outside of our everyday lives through media and has a heart to get the message of LAUGH out there. She exudes the essence of LAUGH and will readily share her testimony with others.
Koti’s laugh and smile light up even the darkest room. She is a tender-hearted woman of God who continually seeks to serve Him and others through her love language of service. She serves LAUGH as our Secretary and keeps us as organized and on task as six women can be.
Koti has been married to her hubby for 12 years and is the mother of three awesome kids who keep her constantly on the move.
