I was very worried. But your comfort brought me joy. ~ Psalm 94:19 At least once a day, go out on your deck, or close your office door or sit in your car, and be quiet for a few minutes, tuning in to God. You could just sit quietly in His presence, or you could meditate on a verse like Psalm 18:2, "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge." When you feel your pressure going up, stop and say, "God, I want to tune into you again. I want to focus on you." Take these mini-breaks during the day to focus on the greatness of God. Maintaining new habits is hard and stress can make you slip back into your old ways. You start thinking, Maybe I should just coast (or cheat) for the next couple days (weeks, months?) But coasting is a downhill journey! A five minute break with God can recharge you and keep you moving onward and upward. When will you take a five minute break to be with God today? FOOD FOR THOUGHT: A quiet break with God is a gift to recharge your body and your soul.
