Rushing here. Rushing there. No time
to stop and think.
Not just now. Wait a minute. The
pots are in the sink.
What is it now? Can't it wait? Can't
you see I'm busy?
Not just now. Perhaps next week.
I'm feeling rather dizzy.
I'll just sit down and take a rest
it's bound to do me good.
I'm sure I need to carry on but
don't feel that I could.
I rested and I waited and I'm sure
I heard God say.
"If you don't rest in me a while,
there won't be another day.
You need to spend some time with
me and listen for my voice.
Hear what I have to say to you and
then you make a choice.
Follow my directions for you know
they are the best."
So now I always make some time to
be with the Lord and rest.
