Rest

Rest…
Time to pause
Time to reflect
Time to be still
Time to listen

Permission to breathe
Slow down
Release the stress
To share with God
Who cares about the big and small
Stuff of our lives

I am learning to rest
To release myself
From the guilt I so
Often feel when
I am still

The work will always be there
The to do list will
Keep growing
But I am learning
If I don’t take time
To be still…
Silently sipping morning coffee,
Listening to a friend,
Reflecting in the nature,
Writing,
Pausing amongst the chaos to pray…

If I don’t take time to be still
I can easily feel
As though I am drowning
In the stuff of life
And miss the simple moments
That matter, that mean everything.

Rest…

Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10
