“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10.)
Sometimes it is difficult to do the first part, to lay down tools and simply be present where we are. The second part can be even more difficult, to trust in His plan, and know my own limitations.
What does being still mean for you? Sitting in a quiet place listening to wind rustling leaves? Going for a walk to calm your mind? Ruffling your cat’s fur as it purrs in your lap? Throwing a few frisbees in the park? Turning off your screens and enjoying a warm cup of coffee looking out the window?
Whatever it is, I believe it is important for us to make time to do it. We all need to slow down at times, and knowing what helps us do that can be a good place to start.
God is with us and for us. Trusting that helps me take my hands off the wheel with confidence.
Thank you Lord for your guidance, hope, and grace.
Peace be with you, dear friends, wherever you find yourselves today.
