During lunch with a friend today, we were talking about how fuzzy life can seem at times and how our busyness actually makes things fuzzier. As my friend spoke about a vexing situation with no clear solution, the phrase "deep clarity" popped out of my mouth. He stopped and said, "That's good." And he wrote it down: deep clarity. "That's what I need right now," he said.

I'm not sure where the phrase came from or exactly what it means, but it rings a bell in my soul also. I don't know exactly how to find it, but I know you don't get deep clarity by increasing your level of frantic behavior.

The Lord never said, "Hurry up, and know that I am God."

He did say, "Be still and know that I am God."

Deep clarity sounds good. Would you like some? You can have it, but you will have to slow down in order to find it.
