Busy, busy, busy

We are so busy.  Sometimes we feel even too busy to pray, too busy to worship, too busy to study.  And yet, without prayer, where do we get the energy and enthusiasm for life?

“Be still and know that I am God” – Psalm 46:10

Through Psalm 46, God is calling us back to a place of peace and serenity.

“The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else — we are the busiest people in the world.” – Eric Hoffer, philosopher and author (1902-1983)

And what is the one thing we ought to do?  Could it be prayer?

“If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”  – Martin Luther (1483-1586)

In these busy days, do not neglect the one, most important thing – prayer.

About Sonja Roberts Dalglish

I love people, math, physics, and theology. I love mysteries which may explain the list above. I am a polio survivor, having had the disease in August 1954. The vaccine was declared safe in April 1955. I am very pro vaccines. They have increased the health and well being of the world. Presently, I am living just west of Corpus Christi, in Kingsville. For naturalists, this seems to be where the coastal plane and the Wild Horse Dessert meet. It is flat which gives us beautiful sunsets. One of our concerns is climate change. We are already hot and dry and getting hotter and dryer. The cattlemen and women are having to graze fewer livestock these days.
