Am I Too Busy?


Rushing to and fro, working all day. I wonder Am I too busy?

Have a meeting over lunch, so I don’t feel guilty about wasting time “just eating.” Talk on the phone while emailing someone else. Use my hands-free cell phone while rushing home.

Walk the dog and jog at the same time so I can kill two birds with one stone. Jump in the shower, scarf down some dinner. Check email and phone messages.Spend 30 minutes of quality time helping the kids with homework. Watch some TV to unwind, and drop into bed at 11PM.

I feel like I have accomplished much today. I might feel fulfilled and good about myself for being so efficient. Still, I wonder when do I get to be in silence and meditate…to hear from God?

What am I trying to medicate? What am I running from? Being too busy is the enemy of rest.Rest restores! Matthew 11:28 reminds us to “Come” to the author of rest. Are you weary in well doing? He will give us rest…but we gotta stop and wait for it.

God help me meditate, not medicate!
