10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
Be still… that is often times one of the most difficult things for us to do. I know that I don’t look forward to still moments… still moments mean I have time to think, time to miss Kayleigh, time to be sad. Time to think about what is missing. So, rather than be still, I keep going, pushing, doing. My plate is over flowing, yet I continue to take on more. And guess what? That works for a little while. But it is also absolutely exhausting.
Tonight I am reminded that when God said “Be Still,” it wasn’t a suggestion. God said BE STILL as the ultimate authority figure. He tells us to be still for our benefit. All the other things going on around me are still just as important as they were this morning, I still have a to do list a mile long, problems are still bombarding me from all directions, and those things are ok. I’m taking a little time to be still, and all of that mess will still be there in the morning. But I will have a different frame of mind, because quite time with my Lord resets my mind.
This is what it looks like when you fail to be still and hit the wall… Kayleigh at about 18 months 💜💜💜
