We live in a quick fast and in a hurry society! Anything we need, we can get with the press of a button. Food, information, news, a response! DING, and it’s there. Running from meeting to meeting, class to class, conference call to conference call , can cause stress and it creates NOISE! We live in a noisy world. This noise can cause stress . To enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere, we must create one. Find a place where you won’t be interrupted. Turn off the iPhone, iPod, iPad, Facebook, twitter, and all those luxuries that can create distractions. I am reminded of the bible verse “Be still and know that I am God” ( Ps 46:10) You can’t live a continually noisy life and expect to walk in peace.
Jesus made sure He had seasons of peace and time alone. Nobody had a greater life’s purpose or more incessant demands placed upon Him than He did. Surely if Jesus needed this type of lifestyle, you do too. Spending quiet time with God is essential to restoring your mind, your body and your emotions.
So take time out for you and God on purpose! Unplug, unwind and escape from the “noise” of the world. When you return, you will be inspired and can inspire others!
