Like many people, I find there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. Being busy all the time can be more than a little stressful. The pace of modern life can leave you downright frazzled.
This past weekend I happened to catch a radio broadcast from Focus on the Family. A guy named Richard Swensen was talking about the hectic pace of modern life, and the stress and chaos that can result. I found myself nodding, chuckling in agreement, and feeling a little guilty when he hit a little too close to home. His message was “slow down”, and it was one I really needed to hear. Maybe you do too.
If you are like me—overworked, overcommitted, or just barely keeping up with the treadmill of modern life—then I would encourage you to listen to Dr. Swensen’s talk. You can hear it streamed (Part 1 and Part 2) through the Focus on the Family radio site.
I don’t know how long it will be available online, so if you don’t have time now you can also download an MP3 for free to listen later (although you will have to give them your name, address, email address, and phone number). Then again, if you are too busy to listen today then you may need to hear it the most.
