Pause.

Sometimes life pauses.

The work on the cabin is paused. Paused for a wedding, for the weekend, for the holiday, for personal interests. It sits and waits — patiently.

Sometimes pauses are welcomed with grateful hearts. Other times pauses are forced and unwelcome intruders. There is one perspective I always gain in a pause.

No activity is so important it can’t be paused. At the same time, living well is so important, a pause is completely necessary to gain perspective, rethink a response, develop character.

This weekend is a holiday — a pause, if you will, in our busy schedules. Stop to appreciate someone or something you take for granted. Take a nap, sit longer with your friends, eat really great food.

12So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. 13And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Oh yes, if your schedule allows, join me this Sunday morning as I bring the third message in the series “Two Kingdoms” at Maple City Chapel. Services live stream at 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. EST.

  1. I am excited about you preaching this Sunday. I will be there. Thank you for the reminder about pauses. We need them, I find it hard to take them both the kind I choose myself and the kind that are thrust upon me from someone/where else.
