Be Still

I awoke earlier than normal this morning. It was a real Blessing having a very quiet house for about an hour and a half! As I was having my devotional time the theme seemed to be "Be Still".

The past couple of weeks we have been through  a couple of things that have been a little unsettling and rocked my world just a bit. My heart has been a bit troubled and I have just needed to draw on God's strength. I must admit that at first I was angry and did not handle things as well as I should have. I was so set on being right that I was losing sight of how God would have me handle it. I know this is the main reason my heart has been so troubled.

The past couple of days the Lord has been speaking to my heart and bringing healing. If I had sought God in the first place, I believe all of this would not have been so hard in the first place. Thankfully, He is there to pick up the pieces and help set us back on the right path.

So this morning I believe that God was just saying, "Be Still". Later I found that Psalm 46:10 is the verse for today on Biblegateway.com.  Yep, I do believe God is talking to me today.



 "Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth."

Psalm 46:10


Is God calling you to Be Still?

I find that too. It's just an unsettled feeling when I jump in and try to control a situation. Then when I step back and pray and focus on God, and not until then, does the peace come and even at times accompanied with answers.

be blessed,
