As I rest in God, I replenish my soul.
If I am hurrying and worrying about completing everything on my to-do list, slowing my pace may seem counterintuitive—yet slowing my pace calms me and brings me back to center. I pause from all that is calling for my attention and create a holy space within. As I move more consciously and breathe more deeply, I refuel my energy and replenish my soul—I rest in God. Just as the space between musical notes creates balance and harmony, so, too, does a moment of peace bring harmony to my soul. I rejoice in the right balance between doing and being. When I am ready to return to my tasks, I fulfill my obligations with efficiency and enthusiasm.
The Lord is good … he protects those who take refuge in him, even in a rushing flood.—Nahum 1:7
