Apr 11 – Busyness

Someone said, “Busyness is the new status symbol. Keeping up with the Joneses used to be a bigger car or house, but now it’s how much you can cram into a week.” In her book “Overwhelmed,” Bridget Shutte said, “I went to the Yale Stress Center where they are doing research on the brains of normal people. They found that if you feel very stressed, your grey matter is 20% smaller in volume than those who don’t. Jack Korning wrote, “When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another – and ourselves.” He could have added, “and with God,” Who said, “Be still and know that I am God.” When He has His the proper place in our lives we don’t feel overwhelmed. The Psalmist wrote ”Show me your ways O Lord. Teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth for you are God my Savior and my hope is in you all the day long.”
