Over-Stimulated

Verse:
 
"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him" Psalm 37:7
 
Lesson:
 

When you are around little kids much, you learn the phrase "over-stimulated". This phrase is used to indicate when the child has received more incoming stuff than they can handle in a given amount of time. If you take a look around, it doesn't take much time to realize that this is not just something that happens with children. Today's world, with all the distractions, technology, stresses, etc. is in a constant state of over-stimulation. When kids are over-stimulated, they get cranky, have trouble falling asleep, and cry a lot. Does that sound like anyone (or several anyones) you know? Spend some time on a busy street in New York City, you'll know what I'm talking about. I'm pretty sure that all of this stimulation isn't what God had in mind when he talked about being still and waiting for him. Take a look at your life...what things are over-stimulating you? Can you take time to just be still and quiet?

 
Prayer:
 
"Dear Jesus - We know that we are distracted and are too busy for you…help us to be still and wait for you." - Amen
