Our house still hasn't sold...be still.
It's time for Rowan to eat again...be still.
We are living in the apt. for at least 6 months...be still.
We have been blessed with everything and more than
we need to care for Rowan...be still.
We have found a church we want to join...be still.
Our beautiful son has finally arrived...be still.
God provides for us daily...be still.
It's three in the morning and I'm awake...be still.
I'm bored...be still.
I'm lonely...be still.
I wonder why sometimes...be still.
Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)
How often do we rush through our day, worried about our own agenda's?
How often do we worry and stress about where God has us for a time?
How often do we grow frustrated with our circumstances?
How often do we forget how much God has blessed us, and how
he provides perfectly for our needs and even our wants?
How often do we go to God in pure thanksgiving instead of in selfish want?
How often do we focus on ourselves rather than the needs of those around us?
How often do we want to rush the ones around us, rather than truly enjoy who they are?
The other day while riding around in the car
with Alan and Rowan,
Alan asked me why I thought our house hasn't sold.
I just replied, "I think God just wants us to be still".
It was like a lightbulb went off for both of us.
Just be still.
