Over and over again,
I hear this invitation to slow down.
It sounds so appealing,
But I just don’t know how.
I’ve been running at this pace my whole life,
And I don’t know how to stop.
But I am tired.
My body and soul are begging for rest.
Will I choose to listen?
Though I can move at a fast pace,
I don't always need to be running.
Though I have a high capacity,
I don't need to function at max capacity.
I can slow down.
I need to slow down.
My body is aching,
But your rhythm of grace gives life.
Will you teach me to keep pace with you?
