Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Mar 24, 2022

Episode Summary: 

Jennifer Dukes Lee and I talk about the advantages of slowing down to live life and how the most important things in life take the longest to grow. If you’re ready to make a break from fast-paced living and learn how to adopt a growing slow lifestyle, you won’t want to miss this episode.

Quotables from the episode:

  • We are an output-driven society and we forget about the importance of what we take in.
  • In order to live the fullest life by slowing down, pay attention to the things that really matter.
  • Take time to appreciate what God is doing in each season.
  • Most of us don’t appreciate winter, but winter offers the opportunity to rest, to celebrate what we’ve been through, and to heal.
  • Time is our friend, not our enemy, and is to be cherished.
  • God views time differently than we do. We tend to always be in a hurry, but God makes everything beautiful in its right time.
  • Consider adopting habits of the unhurried: like lighting candles at dinner, walking around your gardens, lingering in conversation at the end of a church service.

Scripture References:

  • Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart."
  • Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."
  • 1 Corinthians 3:9 "You are God’s field."
