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
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.
