For fast acting relief, try slowing down. (Lily Tomlin, comedienne)

We’ve seen the commercials for some kind of over-the-counter remedy for heartburn or headache, and when you’re hurting, you do want fast relief. Tomlin, however, has hit upon a remedy that would probably help most of us in this fast-paced society we live in. It’s hard to slow down when there is so much to do, but a slower pace would certainly bring relief.

Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. (Psalm 143:1)
