Be Still And Know…

Alarm clock snooze button I can’t believe it’s time to get up stumble through stubbed toe brew coffee spill coffee curse coffee bless coffee open Bible study Bible pray…

Be still and know that I am God.

…grab a shower shave nick face nothing is ironed broke a shoelace hurry up kids pack lunch where’s the dog sign permission form what do you mean you didn’t do your homework we’re so late get in the car tear out of the driveway how could you possibly forget your lunch…

Be still and know that I am God.

…carpool stop fighting move ahead quick prayer have a great day hugs okay no hugs fist bumps you’re not too old to say I love you here’s your algebra book peace and quiet nothing on the radio start the commute hey where’d you get your license are you kidding me what are they stopping for what red light gas light I just filled up gas prices are ridiculous spilled gas on pants car stinks…

Be still and know that I am God.

…in the office inbox overflows I just emptied it yesterday where are they all coming from look at schedule too much on schedule can’t reschedule can’t get it all done have to get it all done return phone call return e-mail more e-mail into meeting out of meeting assignment from meeting another meeting you’re kidding me please no more meetings let’s have a meeting about the meeting…

Be still and know that I am God.

…fire fighting put it out another one starts you’re upset about what I’m so sorry we’ll get it fixed lunchtime time to breathe time to eat turkey sandwich again bread is soggy not another cup of yogurt sick of yogurt want a milkshake is it time to go home yet oh great another meeting…

Be still and know that I am God.

…reverse commute outta my way gotta get home oh wait I forgot ballgame tonight reverse course head to ballpark kid up to bat kid strikes out coach won’t put kid in mad at coach sad for kid why’d we even sign up it’s cold I forgot to eat dinner ballpark hot dogs are gross what’s in the fridge at home…

Be still and know that I am God.

…finally home shoes are off dog is hyper dishes to wash laundry to do homework to forget don’t forget that homework test tomorrow are you kidding me it’s an hour past your bedtime so help me if I have to tell you again what do you mean you forgot to take a shower…

Be still and know that I am God.

…time on couch hang out with bride compare schedules not enough time we’re double booked want to watch TV nothing on TV let’s just go to sleep can’t sleep stare at ceiling too much going on how many more e-mails want to sleep late can’t sleep late forgot about early meeting…

Be still and know that I am God.
