“Slowtown’s” doses of joy

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy” Philippians 1:3-4 (NIV)

The Apostle Paul was writing to his good friends in Philippi. It seems that Paul takes breaks from his extremely busy schedule to sit back and pray for old friends. At the same time he reminisces, which in turn puts joy in his heart, his gut, his inner being.

There are many times I know I could use a dose of joy in the midst of the daily hustle-bustle. Paul’s helpful example here can only be tapped in to if we take time to STOP, PRAY, and REMINISCE. 

The band Twenty One Pilots has a song titled “Slowtown”. It was written about a group of senior high school guys who would get together at a campfire many times in the spring and summer of their graduation. They just wanted to sit around the fire and talk, laugh , and reminisce. 

I urge you to google “Twenty  One Pilots, Slowtown”, and listen to the words… ‘Hey. hey. Wouldn’t it be great, great. If we could just lay down, and wake up in Slowtown…’ Or copy and paste-http://old.thesixtyone.com/s/BeCb6FdjhIX/


Heavenly Father, help me to take the time to STOP, PRAY, and REMINISCE. Thank You for the doses of joy that I so desperately need. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
