Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:4 NIV
Hey everybody! I know I haven’t posted in a long time. I’ve literally been consumed with work and life maintenance, but I’ve come up for air and have something I’d like to share with you.
Strolling to my car yesterday evening I was reflecting on recent events I’ve observed and experienced, when a flash of inspiration to communicate something about impulsivity came over me. You know, some people live their lives impulsively. Knee-jerking from one rash decision to the other, mowing down relationships and opportunities along the way. Be careful of this, if you can.
Time in reflection and rest can lighten dark ominous clouds that hang over situations. Give it time. Fill in the blank of your “it”. A situation, obligation, relationship or health issue. Pause and consider before making hurried impulsive decisions that cannot be easily corrected or may even be life-altering. Just wait a minute, get some wise counsel, pray. Weigh out the options, then respond… or don’t. A runaway ego can be a dangerous thing. Wreaking havoc and creating the need for apologies and retractions as a lifestyle. Sure, there are life’s scenarios that require prompt attention, tend to those. I’m suggesting it’s possible to ground yourself, living a lifestyle of soundness and good choices you feel good about. Let’s work on putting impulsivity in check.
