Take Time

A post from this blog has really resonated and spoken to me... especially this quote from the book she is reading:
I am preparing you for what is on the road ahead. Take time to be still in my presence so that I can strengthen you. The busier you become, the more you need this time apart with me. So many people think that time spent with me is a luxury they cannot afford. As a result, they live and work in their own strength-until that becomes depleted, then they either cry out to me for help or turn away in bitterness.

How much better it is to walk close to me, depending on my strength and trusting me in EVERY situation. If you live in this way, you will DO less, but ACCOMPLISH much more. Your unhurried pace of living will stand out in this rush-crazed age. Some people may deem you lazy, but many more will be blessed by your peacefulness. Walk in the light with me, and you will reflect ME to the watching world. 

The "me and I" within this quote is Jesus. This quote was exactly what I needed to read today! A great reminder! Hmmm... might have to put that book on my reading list. This quote is definitely talking to me SPOT ON!
