We need it

I am not sure how you got to this page or even why you are looking at this blog. But, just stop and take a deep breath. Stop and try to slow down and relax.

Too often we are going too fast. We are in a hurry to get things done and get on to the next thing. As I started to blog I found myself thinking about hurrying and getting this done so that I could move on to the next thing on my "to do" list for the day.

Maybe the most important "to do" for us in our day is stop and focus on God. To stop doing and just be. Be a child of God. Be in love with God. Be in God's presence. Stop and breathe and think about the one who gives us breath and breathes life into us.

Maybe you, were just going to look at what Doug had to say today real fast before you moved on to the next thing. I want to encourage you to slow down and focus on you and God for minute. Stop and breathe. Stop and be.

Try to clear your mind. Try and give the stress of your day to God. Stop and give your worries to God. Stop and unload by just recognizing that you are God's child. God loves you. God is with you. We don't need any words. We don't need to know the right thing to say or do. We just need God. Just be.

Take a time out to be with God. Breathe. Let Go. Breathe. Let Go. This could be the most productive thing that you will do today.

Love today.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug
