I paused to read my Bible. I definitely needed it as I haven’t sat and done this in a while (1-2weeks?). Yes, seriously off track. Too much other going on and not bothering to pause my day for Him.
Genesis 33:12 Esau said, “Let’s break camp and set out, and I’ll go with you.”
13 But Jacob said to him, “My master knows that the children aren’t strong and that I am responsible for the nursing flocks and cattle. If I push them hard for even one day, all of the flocks will die. 14 My master, go on ahead of your servant, but I’ve got to take it easy, going only as fast as the animals in front of me and the children are able to go, until I meet you in Seir.”
15 Esau said, “Let me leave some of my people with you.”
But Jacob said, “Why should you do this since my master has already been so kind to me?” 16 That day Esau returned on the road to Seir, 17 but Jacob traveled to Succoth. He built a house for himself but made temporary shelters for his animals; therefore, he named the place Succoth.
Dinah and the conflict at Shechem
18 Jacob arrived safely at the city of Shechem in the land of Canaan on his trip from Paddan-aram, and he camped in front of the city. 19 He bought the section of the field where he pitched his tent from the sons of Hamor, Shechem’s father, for one hundred qesitahs. 20 Then he set up an altar there and named it El Elohe Israel.
Wow! 😁🤯🙌 Exactly the answer I need at exactly this minute.
~ set your pace.. set a pace healthy for all 3 of us
~ remember this is temporary
~ set up an alter/honor Him 🙏📖
Honestly, the last time I sat down to fully give Him my time, He showed me ..
Genesis 33:14 My master, go on ahead of your servant, but I’ve got to take it easy, going only as fast as the animals in front of me and the children are able to go, until I meet you in Seir.”
He was trying to talk to me about the pace I like to keep and the pace my family needs.. I listened enough to make a note in the margin of my Bible, but, not enough to apply it to my life.. 🤔🙄
Today is a while new day and my ears are open to Him and freshly cleaned!!
