The Slower I Go, the Longer it Takes

We started on a road trip to Canada yesterday. We originally intended to leave by 6:30 am, but I wanted to see a friend first, so we pushed it out til 8:00 am. Then, when I got home at 8:00 am and walked in the bedroom, Cliff was still in bed working on his computer. The 8:00 plan wasn't going to work. We slowly made our way through a haircut, suitcases, dog feeding, kid feeding, car packing, and finally we were driving on the road. We only made it as far as the office, and then two more stops before the border!
Yup, the slower I go, the longer it takes! And this took a long time. This can be just like my trip to The lap of Jesus. Of course it's a direct path, and He's right there, arms wide open. But, there are those days that I might say " oh wait a minute, I have to go see my friend first" and then I'm sidetracked for the rest of the day. I'm slow getting back to Him, and it takes me a long time. He waits, His arms open.
Jesus, Say That Again, if I don't come to You first thing, I'm going to just go slow, and it's going to be long!
