I read this today and wanted to share with my friends at this time or any time this it important and valuable moment reminder:
I stop my thinking and planning. I cease from my worrying about my future, or my tiny little world. I stop fretting over my pathetic little reputation, my narrow little kingdom. I stop for awhile the constant chatter-the e-mail, the text, the messages the TV, the Facebook post, the press of projects, of urgent demands and deadlines, and past due notices.
I chase away the jumble ed mess of scattered thinking of fear, of doubt or worry, and poor motivation. I renounce the desire to “get even” – retribution should hold no power over me. By Michael Owens
I put down my pen, sit in silence, and listen, ” 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
