Slow me down, Lord

Slow me down, Lord. Help me to listen.


  1. Powerful prayer, Chip. It says a lot with a few choice words. Well written.

  2. I was punched in the stomach this morning. The discipline of having a spiritual life. It takes committment. Dedication. Training.

    I train for marathons, 1/2 marathons, triathlons...I train about 10-15 hours per week. For what? Let me tell you, not for glory, not for fame, not for money. I don't get anywhere near the podium. It's just because I love to do it.

    ...and how much more do I say I love God? And yet, I have no discipline. No committment. No training. If I 'trained' half as much in my spiritual life as I do in this physical one, how much more peace would I discover?
