Every Day Simple Tip - PAUSE
Pause is by definition a temporary stop or inaction.
Taking time to briefly stop and be inactive has been a continual challenge for many of us. Sometimes we wouldn’t allow ourselves it or we can’t do it because of our environment.
I was reminded to PAUSE today as my whirlwind mind goes from one thought to the next without a break in the action. When my body is forced to stop when I’m in need of a bathroom break, I will quickly close my eyes and breath, but I don’t know if that is a full PAUSE.
While I was contemplating the word pause which was swirling repeatedly in my mind an acronym came to me. I hope it give you some additional insight in the value of pause.
P urse God – Make a connection by speaking out God’s name – “Help me God.” “God, I need you.”
A ttention on God – Center your attention on God and His goodness, love, mercy, and grace.
U nload Burden – Dump thoughts that are weighing you down – fear, anger, worry – turn them into prayers.
S et Time Aside – Sit down and breath – let the busyness go out and God’s goodness come in. This time needs to be safe and quiet so a single bathroom stall, or your car in the parking lot with the doors locked may be the only way to get this snippet of time.
E xpress Yourself to God – Release the stress and burden that is clogging your mind and let God come in to refresh and give you a renewed spirit.
All this is so that God’s goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives. Psalm 23:6
Take time to PAUSE.
Don't miss a beat!
