Quotes About Not Slowing Down

"Rest is a decision we make. Rest is choosing to do nothing when we have too much to do, slowing down when we feel pressure to go faster, stopping instead of starting. Rest is listening to our weariness and responding to our tiredness, not to what is making us tired. Rest is what happens when we say one simple word: "No!" Rest is the ultimate humiliation because in order to rest, we must admit we are not necessary, that the world can get along without us, that Gods work does not depend on us. Once we understand how unnecessary we are, only then might we find the right reasons to say yes. Only then might we find the right reasons to decide to be with Jesus instead of working for him. Only then might we have the courage to take a nap with Jesus." - Author: Mike Yaconelli

Quotes About Undecided Feelings

"Shes forgotten me. Its over. I dont want to see her again, and now Ill have to. I wont be able to help it. Ill have to sit back and just watch her…live. Without me." The ifrit shrugs. "Then I overestimated your feelings for her." My jaw drops. "How dare you? Because I dont want to see that shes forgotten me?""No. Because nothing is really ever gone or forgotten. If shes a piece of you, and you of her, then memory is merely an obstacle—our power covers the memory, it doesnt erase it. And I should think, at least based on what I saw in your eyes last night, that its an obstacle worth going up against." - Author: Jackson Pearce
