Letting Your Spirit Catch Up With You

Chapel at Providence St. Joseph Burbank, CA

And we're off! Does your life feel like a day at the races? Are you spinning in activity and finding there is not enough time in the day? You are not alone. It seems the more technology we have at our fingertips the less time we have to really enjoy the day. The 'do more with less" philosophy has only added to the problem. There is way less time for you in your day, not to mention the time squeeze that has been put on your relationship with God.

In the midst of the daily routine and constant quest to catch up, you must also take time to let your spirit catch up with you. Your spirit and your relationship with God should take top priority.  If not, you will find you are all out of sorts, misaligned, on the edge, and feeling in over your head.  Yes, I know you are too busy, too tired, and too stressed. That is even more reason to take 10 or 15 minutes to stop everything and be still. Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Clear your mind. Soon you will feel calmer, centered, and focused because your spirit finally caught up with you. 

Now that you and your spirit are together sitting in a quiet place, you can actually listen for the still small voice of God. He is right where you are. He is resting upon you and delighted to have you in His presence. Now that is what I call the best catching up you or anyone could do.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10
