A Fly On Your Wall

If a fly was on your wall what would he be thinking? You are one frazzled person or you are trusting and at peace. Are you running in circles like the fly being chased by a fly swatter? They move fast, high, low and just when you think you got them they are off flying again. Maybe you are one who rest in Lord from being encouraged by His words. Do you feel panic and pressure or relaxed with grace though what you hear. Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
What are your priorities? Here is a poem by Nancy Stitzel

I"m Busy, Lord!
I'm busy, Lord. Surely You can see
The thousand things that wait for me!
The dishes still lie in the sink
I can't stop to pray and think

Lord, I know You understand,
For You gave these children to my hand;
And now they cry and need me so,
Lord, You understand. I'd better go

Now I've got them all to sleep,
I'd better dust and mop and sweep.
I must thaw out the meat for stew,
And the ironing is long overdue!

And kindly my Lord answered me,
"Why do you from My presence flee?
I have so much for you today.
My child, I want to hear you pray.

"I love you , child; I want you here
to rest and listen-- to shed a tear.
What if Paul had stopped to say,
'Lord, I'm too busy to write letters today!'?

"No, my child, I'm what you need,
Through household duties you can speed,
Yet when you're through, there's emptiness
If this quiet time you miss."

Oh, Thank You, Lord, for showing me
How much I need to wait on Thee.
For what's an undone dish or two
Compared with sharing time with You?!
