SLOW ME DOWN, LORD

Lord, I’m busy —
working
and planning
and going
and doing.

It’s all for good.
It’s serving
It’s making sure everything is right,
and presentable,
and working.

Sometimes I feel that
I am busy just being busy.

But then I hear You say,
“My yoke is easy;
“Come and rest.”
And You remind me of Mary
who sat at Your feet
while Martha worked
and stewed
and fretted
because no one would help.
“Mary hath chosen that good part.”

Lord, are my priorities straight?
“I told You my plans and You replied;
Now give me Your instructions.” *

Slow me down, Lord.
You are saying that
some things are more important
than doing a good job,
making a plan work.

Help me to find that good part —
quiet, peaceful, revitalizing
fellowship with Jesus.
That will not be taken away.

—Grady W. Manley
*Psalms 119:26
