When life is all a roaring wind and a blur of passing moments propelled by crisis or obligation, stop for a few moments to rest and think. When every activity of life is a race or a desperate contest of will, wait and see where you stand, whether you really need to move so fast or not. Devote these moments of contemplation to the consideration of God’s will for you. This is the sacred pause, the devotion of a moment to holiness.
The headlong rush from crisis to crisis and the persistent demands of the world may be wearing you out, leaving you too weary to love your dear ones the way you wish you could. Your dear Savior desires your attention, too.
We gather every week to worship together and our communion is a special occasion for paying loving attention to our Savior. This has been properly referred to as a sacred pause, but it should not be the only one:
Pause to Pray
Pause to Sing
Pause to Listen
Pause to Repent
Pause to Help
Pause to Rest
A healthy spiritual life includes the sacred pause. It is a healing comfort for the stresses of a troubled soul. It is a refreshment for the desolate or desperate life. It is a blessing from God Almighty, intended for the comfort and restoration of His beloved children. Pause for a moment to praise His name.
