We live in such an instantaneous world. The speed at which we live life is incredible. Even now, I'm sitting in a bar waiting for a friend and writing this blog from my blackberry (which is a whole new concept to me in its own right).

Whilst we live life wanting and expecting instant gratification are we actually missing out? Have we forgotten as a generation how to be patient, how to plan for things, how to save for things, how to relish the moment?

We're told to "Be still and know that I am God.". Does this mean we cannot truly know God unless we are still? Is it only when we stop that we can meet with, and know, God? And if this is the case - how do we extract ourselves from the frenetic pace of life to "be still"?
