Okay so I am checking in with my busyness. At least I have someone to hold me accountable. :)
As I tried to slow down today I refelcted on the what the Psalmist said in Psalm 23. He makes
me lie down. These were the questions that came to my mind as I reflected throughout the day...
Why would he use that word? Even in the psalmists time were people so busy that they did not have time to slow down and rest in the Lord?
I am sure that I need Him to make me lie down and rest. This is definitely not something I can do on my own. I find that I am so wrapped up in the daily to-do list that I don't have time for anything else. Everything, even God, becomes part of my to-do list. I would love to say that I am so busy because I have kids, but the sad thing is that I was this busy before kids.
I am not sure where to go from here, but I do know that I feel this pull to slow down. I will keep you posted.
Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)
