You may be facing the hustle and bustle of everyday life that can include juggling a career, church commitments, an unruly toddler, bickering siblings, perplexing teen, aging parents, kids’ schedules, paperwork, laundry, or dishes, but always remember what is said in Psalm 62:5-6: Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. That’s why it’s crucial for the state of mind, body, and soul to find a few minutes of solitude amidst the hustle and bustle of life. It helps us de-stress, rejuvenate the spirit, find balance, re-evaluate our priorities and goals, gives us a sense of empowerment, and re-ignite a zest for life.
