I don’t concern myself with matters too great or
too awesome for me to grasp.
Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself...
Psalm 131:1b-2a NLT
One of the hardest things to do is disconnect. Finding places of quiet in our ever growing busyness is becoming more difficult, but more necessary.
We feel an obligation to respond to the beep and the buzz of our phone. We have to be intentional about making time to set aside technology. That may be something as epic as taking a week long hiking trip in the back country or it may be as simple as putting your phone aside and sitting alone on your back porch.
Being disconnected quiets and calms your soul. When you disconnect, you release all the busyness and problems of life back into God's hands. You give up the illusion of control. This is a powerful act of worship.
