I sat down to the computer thinking I “need to” do . . . “should be” doing . . . “have got to” do . . . and realized sometimes all that must be set aside. Sometimes I need to just be. Yes, that’s right. All those things we let take up our days and nights . . . when we take the time to be with the Lord in quiet and seek only Him, when we take a retreat whether at a place away from home or in a quiet corner of our own house, we are renewed and refreshed and far more enabled to “do” all those things He wants us to. It’s amazing and it’s true. Try it . . . really try it, just once. You’ll be amazed and you’ll realize all our busy hours and days become more manageable when He’s a part of all of our “stuff.”
I sat down to the computer and realized I had a headache. I suddenly thought of a song I truly love and am ALWAYS inspired by and so I played it. Here’s a link to it. Hillsong’s Shout to the Lord. You can find the Lord anywhere you are if you look. Shout with delight! Shout from the mountaintops, shout from the valley, shout from your own backyard. In all things, shout to the Lord with praise! Oh, and did I mention that my headache has gone? Thank you Lord!
