JUST ONE MORE THING!!The Most Important Thing
Dr. Kluane Spake
Facing the New Year can be depressing! I mean… everyone seemed to have a lot of fun watching a giant ball drop – while you may just want to prepare your heart… or go to sleep.
Guess we should be restructuring our goals by now! Except many of us are sidetracked with more obligations than we have physical or emotional energy or financial where-with-all to finish. Then, there’s all the bad news, loud talking, and loud everything else.
Somehow, there seems to be no time for ourselves, our thoughts, or our meditations.
Many don’t even allow time to think – we just have to have the TV or radio going… and our phone sending texts and emails dinging.
Frankly, most of us need a reality check – Just ask yourself, “WHY are I not listening to the inner part of myself?”
When you turn off the external inputs, you discover the incredible silent spaces of the Lord and all the new possibilities, opportunities, and different solutions to nagging problems.
When wondering what is the most important thing, we need to ask the questions, “Am I a human being – or a human doing? What is it all about? BEING or DOING?”
When lives become non-stop, you become worn out.
There has to be time when you stop answering the phone, you quit reading email, and doing social media.
There must be times of relaxation, recreation, quiet time, and time with family.
“The best choice you ever make could be one where you decide to do more for your own inner health and happiness so you can be a better human being.” L. Milter
Quiet time. Make it happen. Put this FIRST on your GOALS!
Just ONE MORE THING! Schedule it.
Oh yes, you’ve heard it forever – just forgotten it momentarily! It’s the lost time called Sabbath rest.
Have a happy Day!!! I think this may be the Most Important Thing!
