Pause

Updated: Jul 29, 2019

Pauses can sometimes lead to being "stuck," but instead, use it to reset, refocus and remind yourself why you can't give up!

Pause that is good is when anger needs to subside, or to keep resentment from being on the rise

Pause that is healthy is when prayer needs to be said, to calm, soothe, or dissolve the raging red

Pause before responding out of willful intent to hurt or pierce with words

Pause instead of jumping to wrong conclusions before the whole explanation is heard


But a pause that has life on hold because of hurt and disappointment that unfolds.

Or a pause that causes the heart to grow cold because of manipulation, deceit, and intentional lies told

That's the pause to be weary of for it presents initially to be harmless as a dove

That kind of pause allows bitterness to set in and presents resentment and isolation as a win-win

That kind of pause delays dreams and healing and makes it harder for the heart to see prayers answered though they are revealing

That pause presses pessimism and skepticism and suppresses optimism and faith-ism

True, sometimes life's choices cause a pause.

Yes, at times unwise decisions cease positive applause

Sure, it's okay to cry, shout or vent it out

However, it is not okay to concede to pity's bout

Get up and fight for the royal priesthood you are

Stand up to the negativity that comes by freight train, bus, or car

Pause and Pray for renewed eyes to see

Pause and Praise in advance for the continued blessings coming to thee

Pause when a reset of mind, spirit, and body is needed

Pause to rejuvenate and reboot so God's guidance can be seen, heard, and heeded.

Pause to re-gain focus on what's next and the manifestation of the dreams shown

Pause to go after the desires of the heart, even if alone

Pause to gain new momentum, inspiration, and revived dedication

Pause to be reminded of goals, objectives and hopes without all of the reservation

Pause only to regroup, refocus, and re-energize

Pause only for a moment, not long enough to cause momentum to be petrified


"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed." ~Mark 1:35 (ESV)
