Reacting Not Resting

Yesterday was a day of reacting.  The dictionary defines reacting as “acting in response to or under the influence of a stimulus or prompting.”  Yep, that’s what I did today.  I was too busy.  There was too much to do.  I forgot how to rest.  Because when I’m resting I’m not reacting.  At least not reacting the way I reacted today.

Help me, Lord, to “be still and know that You are God.”  Help me to rest in the craziness that is today, this season, in all the situations where I want to react.  Be still my soul.
