“Busy.” I had been hearing this apparently innocuous word a lot in casual conversations, and it got me to wondering why I was hearing it so often and if, in fact, it was so innocent.

But the busyness that I was hearing was accompanied by a “too much to do and too little time to do it” sense of stress. And the frequency with which I was hearing the word made me wonder if it was more of an imposition than I originally thought. When I developed the symptoms of busyness in my own life, I felt impelled to pray for spiritual clarity and joy.
