any one of these things is close to impossible in this lightning paced world that i’m constantly finding myself in the fast lane of.

TIME flees from my presence
FOCUS is constantly interrupted
ONE THING at a time is near impossible as i return phone calls on the way to daily errands and activities.
                             YOU say…
meditate on My Word
quiet your mind
calm your heart

the world…

pushes   pulls   yanks   draws   coaxes   prods   threatens   vies

for every millisecond

every breath

every thought

The disciples, who we perceive to have had it all, even they begged – Lord, teach us to PRAY.

YOU answered –
GO AWAY from the chaos
GO AWAY from the crowd
find PEACE, QUIET, and FOCUS on ME and all will fall into place

but HOW? how do we do this? we wake up earlier and earlier only to find that there are more things to be done, no quiet places, no place to unplug, no areas left of solitude. multi-tasking is where we attempt to find more time.

the LIE: do more than one thing and you will find that the time multiplies.

the TRUTH: the more you attempt to do, the more time you create, the more things there are to fill that time with. as we pile more on top of more to get ahead, we fall further and further behind.

Quote from an Episcopal monk in Boston: “Do one thing at a time. As much as possible, do ONLY ONE THING” –Sabbath Rest in a World of Stress

if you have found ways to accomplish this task, please share…
