Constantly choosing to be busy may be an unconscious attempt to have
Value before the Lord. To deepen requires exactly the opposite! We must
Slow down, choosing to spend blocks of time with God in private. We need
To let go of the value we place on service, availability and busyness
And take up the value God places on quietness, trust and peace (rest).
We need to be aware of being too needed in any work; we are not! God
Calls us not foremost to "accomplish," but to a deep relationship with
Himself. A deep friendship with us as persons is what He desires most.
