First of all the Psalm (Ps 123:1-4) caught my attention. I guess this week was rather busy, and psalms always seem to catch me in those times, this time is was the first line "To thee I lift up my eyes, O thou who art enthroned in the heavens!" (Ps 123:1).
If we are running around and are trying to get everything done that has to be done we can rather feel a bit stretched, like to little butter on a piece of bread. The first thing that comes under pressure in my case are probably my prayers, as that just seem time that does not directly help towards fulfilling all the duties we have to do and it rather just seem to take a lot of time...
But it is exactly then, in busy times, that we need the time to recollect ourselves! It is very easy to "save" time by not spending time with God and to keep busy with what we are doing. But "saving" this time will only help on the short term, it only helps with what has to be done now. However, often we are running a marathon, not making a sprint, and we have to keep that in mind: "let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus" (Heb 12:1 RSV)
So especially when it is busy, I think it is very important to be "be constant in prayer" (Rom 12:12 RSV) and "to thee I lift up my eyes, O thou who art enthroned in the heavens!" (Ps 123:1)
