Awake my soul

Everyone has days when we want to be still and we can’t.  On days like these we resent the pace of life that has built up around us. Too often the people we work with also find the strain and stress of our work output impinging on their lives. 

We may not be able to make instant changes but we can decide to slowly take the foot off the gas, reduce our work demands and create a Tuesday evening that is making plans for a more peace filled life.

 

Good Morning Lord,

refNothing seems to change

It’s a misty morning

And I feel a bit hazy

I struggled to sleep last night 

Now I’ve got a crick in my neck

I want to speak longer with you  - Lord

I’d like time to read my Bible 

Not just a text

I’d like more time to be still

To slow down

Time to live more

But I have to go -

Soon I’ll hit the traffic

Very soon I’ll be in the rush hour madness 

 

Still this whirlwind in me

In the midst of all this busyness

Let me be an example to others

Give me the peace that passes all understanding

Keep my mind  in conversation with your will

Give me eyes to see where the light is shining

Give me words to speak in good taste 

Come Holy Spirit of God

Awake my soul to sing of your goodness

Let your light still shine through me

Even when the sun is setting on a Tuesday evening.

Matthew 6: 33-34

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
