When You Need To Slow Down





The Lord is my pacesetter; I shall not rush;
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals;
He provides me with images of stillness, which restore my serenity;
He leads me in ways of efficiency through calmness of mind, and His
guidance is peace; Even though I have a great many things to accomplish
each day, I will not fret, for His presence is here; His timelessness, His
all-importance will keep me in balance; He prepares refreshment and
renewal in the midst of my activity By anointing my head with his oil of
tranquility; My cup of joyous energy overflows; surely harmony and
effectiveness shall be the fruit of my hours; For I shall walk in the
peace of my Lord, and dwell in His house forever. May the peace of God be
yours as you give of your best in service to those in your care. Amen.
