Getting Away from Hurry

“Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.” –Amy Wilson-Carmichael

Our culture idolizes busyness and stress. Having no time for anything else implies that a person is important and lives a meaningful life. The truth is much of our busyness serves no lasting purpose. To enjoy life and take it slow allows us to rest in God and focus on what’s truly consequential and fulfilling.
