I thought when we got older things were supposed to slow down. Instead it seems that life and the world are spinning faster, not slower. It may be the product of all those time-saving devices we have all acquired.
I do know one thing — ceaseless activity is not part of God’s plan for any of us. We all need times of withdrawal for renewing our strength. Life is hard enough without a constant sense and feeling of being tired.
It is part of each of our calls, to on occasion rest before God.
