Stop Trying

It is exhausting - trying to keep up with the demands of society.  You find yourself running after stuff you don't want, things you don't need, and blocked by only your missteps.  So how can you slow it down?  Refocus.  Retreat.  Use this day to shift your focus to what Holy Spirit is guiding.  Yeah, He is guiding, but you may have been too busy to hear.  Take one day to practice a spiritual discipine of silence, solitude, or fasting.

Try it.  I promise you can learn so much about yourself.  You will find in the 'listening for God' that your way is already laid out.  It cuts down so much of your 'rat race' running.  Enjoy the joys of this day! type to you later.
