Thoughtful Thursday - Practice the Pause
Posted by Linda McQuinn Carlblom
Pause. It sounds counterproductive to our always doing way of life. Productivity is paramount, right? Well, no. When we fail to pause, we run headlong into things. We don't take time to think things through, or figure the consequences.
Pausing may be one of the most productive things we can do. It can eliminate bad results. It avoids missteps in relationships. It gives us rest, even if for a few minutes. And when we use those paused moments for prayer? Get ready for a miracle to happen. A change in your situation may be waiting for your prayerful pause. The Miracle Worker is ready and willing to act when we pause and pray.
"Be still and know I am God" (Psalm 46:10). Practice the pause.
