“Laying a life up against the chest of His Word, and hearing the steady beat of His heart, is the only soundtrack that strengthens the human heart.” ~ Ann Voskamp
Pause, if you can. Take in a deep breath. Silence your soul for a moment and look around. If the scene is hectic, close your eyes. Block out the noise and Allow your face to soften as you breath in. Relax your neck and shoulders. Keep breathing.
Thank God for His beautiful peace. If only for a few moments, You can revive and recenter your soul In Him.
Mondays can be overwhelming as the racing gates are released and we set out to conquer all the demands of this life. The other day, I lost my keys (nothing new.) I searched calmly (at first) until I became highly agitated when they weren’t in any of my usual “drop” points.
Finally, I’m sweating the worst kind of sweat: stress sweat, when it occurs to me I haven’t even asked for help. Call it pride, as I have a pinge of guilt once the realization hits me.
No. As soon as I paused and remembered Who I serve, I was able to relax and find my keys. It is the small things in life, sometimes, which can cause the greatest frustrations.
Perspective is Imperative. I dare you to say that 10 times and pray it gets stuck in your mind like song lyrics.
Today, I have paused, if only for a moment and it is beautiful!
Father, Thank You for your patience as you wait on us to pause and look to You. I pray You grant peace to those who seek Your Kingdom today. Let your beauty be realized and then sing through our hearts. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
Have a BLESSED Monday,
