Hurry


I think part of what gets me in trouble
        is that I am always in a hurry

I have so many things I need to do
        and seemingly not enough time to do it all

I know multi-tasking is the new craze
        but it just seems to make me less effective at everything

O Lord… slow me down

Help me to see, O Lord
        what really matters today

Grant me the capacity
        to sort out the important from the urgent

Allow me to be gracious with myself
        when I disappoint people and their expectations of me

O Lord… slow me down

Because the truth is
        when I go so fast
                I miss
                        you
                                most
                                        of
                                                all

O Lord… slow me down
