This week, let's take time to slow down.

Life pulls us in every direction. Every direction, except to God. We always need to be busy, trying to keep up and keep our heads above water. There is always more to do, something to buy, something to build, something to clean. Yes, we have responsibilities and obligations but we also have a responsibility to be feeding our soul and feasting on the Word.

In all the rush and whirlwind of life, sometimes the best thing we can do is just take a deep breath and ponder on the word of God. I'm guilty of this, of being too busy with too many things that "gotta" get done I don't realize I've managed to neglect one of life's most important aspects. I need to listen.

Psalm 46:10 (NIV) "He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” "

"Be still, and know" -- I'm not very good a that. And it's not just from the coffee!

I've shared another quote in this post. This quote really got me thinking about the importance of slowing down. Am I also guilty of being more concerned with what I can get out of my study than I am with finding Jesus and hearing Him speak to me through these words? 

You see, if I want to know Jesus better and I want to be more Christlike, I can do that by reading about Him. But I can do it better by spending time with Him.

How much time are you spending with Jesus, not only in study but in prayer or in your Christian community?
