Some days are just so crazy….You can’t accomplish much.
You ought to call a lonely sister, just to keep in touch.
There’s someone with dementia who’s living life alone
And there’s a college student, being faithful on her own.
You need to visit the widow who sits just down the pew.
And help the mom who brings five kids. She does look up to you.
There’s Charlie, who’s a visitor and Sam, who’s homeless now.
You’ve planned to stop at the nursing home, but, oh…you don’t know how!
You juggle items on your list. So much is left undone.
You try to be six places, but you barely cover one.
And every woman reading this, while rushing…running late…
To fill needs and plates and babies’ mouths….Each woman can relate.
But if she’s made it to the Word and bowed her soul in prayer
She’s done the most important thing. The rest will still be there.
So when the clock is chasing and the needs outrun resources,
Remember that He’s ever-present and the best recourse is
To recognize the refuge…From the rush that is your foe.
In every anxious time of stress, to just be still and know.
