How to Slow Down - Teen Tuesday

How to slow down

Moms and Grandmothers, today’s devo is designed for you to share with your daughter to have a conversation about how to slow down to spend time with God.

Have you ever felt nervous…fidgety…on edge… cranky? And even though you didn’t want to act the way you were, you kept on stomping through your day, lashing out at everybody who crossed your path? Well, take heart! You’re not alone!

This happened to Martha, a woman in the Bible. She got too involved in the activities of her life. In all her busyness, Martha didn’t take time to enjoy Jesus and worship Him when He came to visit.

Are you thinking, I would never ignore Jesus if He came to my house! But imagine how easy it is to go about your day without lifting up a prayer, without doing devotions, without serving Jesus, without thanking Him. You’re missing out!

Put aside the busyness and chaos of school, pressures, and worries. Totally enjoy time with the Lord.

RESPOND

Lord, I love You. I want to hang out with You. Life gets crazy sometimes. I want the peace of Your love. I want the joy of being in Your presence. Amen.

REFLECT

“‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things,  but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’” (Luke 10:41-42)

What can you say no to today so you can say yes to time with God?

REMEMBER

All our time is better spent when some of our time is spent in God’s Word.
