Slowing Down


Mental or emotional tranquility.

This is one definition I found this week for the word rest.

It kind of describes where I have been these last few months. I have been learning to say the word "No" a bit more. I am trying to get to a place where I don't jump at every opportunity and try to disentangle myself from an overabundance of activity.

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

It is so easy for me to distract myself with stuff.

It's harder for me to listen.

So I have pulled back on my writing for a season and have also been practicing my listening skills.

I am in a season of rest.

What season are you in?

As my eyes defocused for a second reading this I noticed the great similarity between the word "rest" and the word "reset."

Oh Wow. That opened up a whole new line of thought for me. Thanks Paul!
