Escape from Busy Lives for a Moment and Rest


Come now, little man [and woman],
turn aside for a while
from your daily employment, 
escape for a moment
from the tumult of your thoughts.
Put aside your weighty cares, 
let your burdensome distractions wait,
free yourself awhile for God
and rest awhile in him.
Enter the inner chamber of your soul,
shut out everything except God
and that which can help you in seeking him,
and when you have shut the door, seek him.
Now, my whole heart, say to God,
"I seek your face, Lord,
it is your face I seek." 
~Anselm of Canterbury in Theology for a Troubled Heart
Excerpt found in The President's Devotional by Joshua DuBois
