You have to give it a break, I'm serious, right now, give it a break! Life comes at you full force most days, and if you are anything like me, you want to jump on that bull, and "ride it to the ground." Yeah! Show that thing who's the boss. Right! WRONG! That attitude will put you in an early grave. As Christ followers we have to learn this lesson every day, and re-learn it again.
Psalms 46:10 (ESV) Be still, and know that I am God.
That means, we stop, and realize we can't ride this bull to the ground and win! It will never stop. So we step back, get quiet with God and rest in His strength. I know that sounds so elementary, but if practiced correctly, this is what it looks like:
No Distractions (you can engage others in the moment, my wife tells me when I'm not doing so good at this one 🙂 )
None of these, instead, you have: Joy, peace, fullness & rest
