Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Learn to Rest
photo by Erin Doyle

“We all need short vacations
in life's fast and maddening race…
An interlude of quietness
from the constant, jet-aged pace,
So when your day is pressure-packed
and your hours are all too few,
Just close your eyes and meditate
and let God talk to you...
For when we keep on pushing,
we're not following in God's way…
We are foolish, selfish robots
mechanized to fill each day
with unimportant trivia
that makes life more complex
And gives us greater problems
to irritate and vex.
So when your nervous network
becomes a tangled mess,
Just close your eyes in silent prayer
and ask the Lord to bless
Each thought that you are thinking,
each decision you must make,
As well as every word you speak
and every step you take…
For only by the grace of God
can you gain self-control,
And only meditative thoughts
can restore your peace of soul.”
- Helen Steiner Rice

This is great. Can you print off a copy for me? This is one I would like to put on my BBs at school. :-)
