Be Still

Be still and know I am God, says the psalmist in Psalm 46. It is a reminder I periodically need. I think it is a reminder many of us need now and then.

Actually it is a reminder we need quite a lot. We are always doing.  Always going.  Always planning three steps ahead to get everything done.  We spend so much time doing so many things. Then we do some more. We spend so much time doing (and worrying about the things we didn’t get done) that there is very little time for us to simply be.

Sometimes we need to just stop.  To just be in stillness.  To sit with God with no agenda. Perhaps to give God a chance to get a word in edgewise. I read the other day, “Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is bad translation.”

So find a few moments today to stop. To be still.

Be still and know I am God.
Be still and know I am.
Be still and know.
Be still.
