Gratitude Day 115 – Slow Me Down

Mon., Sept. 10, 2018

slow me down

Slow me down, Lord.

Ease the pounding of my heart.

Help me relish the quiet of my mind.

Challenge me to slow my hurried pace

And learn a different understanding of time.

When the day is confusing,

May I find calm in You.

As my nerves and muscles tense,

Bring soothing noises into my life.

May I find minute vacations throughout the day:

Challenge me to linger on a phone call,

Appreciate a spot of nature and

Breathe in some meaningful words from a book.

When I feel that I need to be the hare

When what I need are some tortoise moments,

Remind me that life is not a race.

Increasing speed will not gain me any more minutes.

Help me see the strong branches of a solid tree

And remind myself that this tree grew slowly and well

Dear Lord – slow me down.

Inspire me to send deep roots into the most important

Things in my day.

Only then, then I discover my life’s most important values

Thank you for the journey of this day.


Blessings –
