Singer Brandon Lakes Reminds Us To Slow Down And Appreciate God’s Many Works

Christian music singer Brandon Lake shared a message and words of wisdom that everyone would do well to take to heart and practice regularly: appreciation for what God is and has done in your life.

Everyone wants things done this very instant. Society is programmed to do everything efficiently in a cost-effective way. Many people have even mastered the art of multitasking. Time is money, as the old saying goes. 

People move at a million miles a minute, always looking for ways to become more efficient. It’s because of this “time is money” mentality most individuals have an issue with patience. Waiting isn't easy and is usually never an enjoyable experience. 

However, God can use these times when we must wait and slow down to open our eyes to His many blessings. This is the insightful message and observation Brandon shared with his subscribers on YouTube

In the clip, Brandon is driving down a road. It’s a road that Brandon must slow down, or else he’ll cause damage to his truck. He admits that he would much rather travel down the path at a swift speed. But he says every time he slows down, he’s blessed.

“Every time I drive on this road, I don’t know why, but it gives me a peace,” he said. “Makes me take in creation, the trees around me. And although, at times, it can be frustrating not to just rip down a road and get to my house as fast as possible, it’s been kind of a gift.”

He also instructs people to be more welcoming of those periods and those times when life forces us to slow down. 

“And don’t despise a slower season,” he said. “Because it might be that God’s giving you eyes for what He’s doing around you. And if you were in a really fast-paced season, it might be hard to take it in.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1 “For everything there is a fixed time and a time for every business under the sun.”
