Back Off, Okay?

Dear Readers,

On this lovely, quiet morning, I respectfully tell you to BACK OFF!

You’ve got deadlines. I get that. You’ve got things that need to be done. I get that, too. But you’re overwhelmed. You feel the panic rising every time you think about how you’re going to do it all. You are hacking away at the big picture, hardly making a dent, because you haven’t backed off from your frenzied activity long enough to take a good look at how ineffective you’ve been.

Stop!

Take a breath. Now take another one. There, doesn’t that feel better? Make a conscious effort to fill your lungs properly and then slowly let the air out.

Read this:

“Be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10

Now rest. That’s all.
