When I’m Wound Up tight

It feels so good to relax, Lord; especially these days

when the pace is so hectic!  Seems like the “unwinding

experience” at day’s end becomes more difficult as my

spring tightens.

When each typical day starts gaining momentum, I

must bring into focus what is vital to accomplish, and

what is less important.  This awareness keeps me

from getting tense over things I can coast through

with a lighter touch.

Teach me the art of taking “minute vacations.”  A

brief respite from the pressure of constant activity

allows me to be in tune with my own natural pace.

Then I can become more efficient with each task.

Another root cause of being “up tight” is my self-

centeredness!  I spend so much time and energy

gazing at the problems as I travel down the road.

I only glance now then toward God.
