One of my favorite Bible verses is Psalm 46:10: "Be still, and know that I am God;"
Wow! After all of my posts about my kids activities, winding down of the school year, getting curriculum ready for next year, auditions, plays, recitals, etc. I began to wonder if I had taken the time to be still. Last Sunday afternoon it slammed into me. In my head I heard "Be still".
Since then it has been a bit easier to be still. Things are winding down. But, it shouldn't be like that. I should remember to be still each and every day. I'm sure I can find the time to be still, to allow myself to be re-centered and focused on His word. I read my Bible and pray each day. However, I don't allow myself the time just to be still and absorb, soak and just enjoy myself in this time.
I also need to remember to be still at other times as well.
When my kids are bickering? Be still. Instead of immediately raising my voice, I need to be still and remember to love.
When school work doesn't go like it should? Be still and remember to focus on what's really important. My children and their precious hearts and souls.
When I am overwhelmed by all I have to do? Be still, and remember, He's got it covered.
When I am worrying about my husband's job situation? Be still. No matter the situation we are facing God knows about it already and He knows the outcome. As one of His children I need to be still and trust my heavenly Father.
Today I will remember to be still and trust in my God. Will you be still?
