"Be still and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth." ~ Psalm 46:10 NRSV
"Be still" - it sounds like such a simple thing, doesn't it? But in today's fast-paced world, it can be much more difficult than we realize. When was the last time you were truly "still?"
I often I find myself over-scheduled, over-worked, and over-tired - as I'm sure many of you do, as well. I find it difficult to make time to "be still." When I do manage to be physically still, my mind runs a mile a minute with all the things I should get up and do! I sometimes wonder how I'm ever supposed to get my mind to be quiet! But I know that what my Lord wants me to do is make time to "be still" and be with him, to talk with him, and to listen for his voice. And I know that if I keep my eyes on Jesus, he will help me learn to do exactly that!
So that's my challenge for myself this week - and my challenge for you, too! Make time each day to "be still" and be with God. He has important things he wants to share with you - but you have to listen!
God's blessings to you!
