Phone, wallet, keys, computer, computer charger, lunch, coffee …
Can you relate to this mental checklist I run through as I race out the door in the morning? I laugh at myself because sometimes, when I’m walking out my front door, I have so many things in my hands that it looks like I’m leaving home for a week.
Nope … just for the workday!
I don’t know if your mornings look anything like this, but as I’ve thought about the fast pace of not just my mornings but sometimes my whole life, this is what I’ve realized: Sometimes I get moving so fast I forget to slow down and remember what is most important. And while there’s a lot of good advice and wisdom to live by, the most important words to remember are the truth-filled words in the pages of Scripture.
So if you’re feeling overwhelmed today … if the pace of your life feels out of control … if your heart feels discouraged and weary … turn with me to Psalm 103:1-5 (ESV):
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
