Uncomfortable Situation? “Stop! Look! Listen!”

I know that when I am faced with an uncomfortable situation that my first instinct is to RUN! and run as fast as I can to get away from things.

Lately, God has been teaching me to STOP!

When I was little, before crossing a street, I was always told to “Stop! Look! Listen!”

Am I being confronted by an abusive person? Is worry tormenting me so I cannot rest? Are my emotions being triggered by an event of some sort? Are temptations growing out of control like a run away freight train?

Stop, look and listen…..

I need to stop and don’t run.

I need to look to see what is really going on and what God is doing in my life.

I need to listen to my Savior so I can get the wisdom and guidance I need.

Today, are you running away? or are you choosing to Stop, Look and Listen.
