Hitting the "Mute" Button

Wait patiently for the Lord.  Be brace and courageous.  Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. (Ps. 27:14)

   Life is jam-packed with busyness.  People rushing out of subways, trains, street cars, and buses to get somewhere ahead of everyone else is maddening.  The rush hour traffic in large cities like New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Miami is enough to try any man's patience.

   Everyone seems to have their plates so full of activities and busyness that they don't have time to relax in the Lord.  Allowing ourselves to get caught up in the speed and noise driven culture hinders our desire to spend time with the Lord.  What can we do to offset this busyness and enjoy our relationship with God?

   Instead of frantically changing lanes or rushing from the subway to the office, get in the slow lane and whisper a prayer to the Lord.  Better yet when you are watching television push the "mute" button and close your eyes for a bit of respite from all the noise and clamor.

Thought for the Day: God rested on the seventh day to provide an example for us.
