Just Be.

I find myself having to be reminded on a constant basis to slow down.

My default settings require of me that I am in constant motion, if not physically I am mentally running a marathon. My mind never stops, my thoughts always are processing and pondering. My heart is always mulling and considering, evaluating and planning.

This morning, as I listen to the music and consider the beautiful words I found this morning on A Holy Experience ..I am reminded by the stillness this morning to just be.

To be at peace.

To be calm.

To be still.

To value quiet, and encourage rest.

I have much to do today, as every day simply because I have three little ones, a husband, a home and responsibilities to fulfill.

In that, I will still rest spirit at peace, knowing that all things are passing and my only job is to do what I have to do with a sense of purpose to bring Him glory ..that is all.

It is not easy for me, because the world tells me I have to rush, produce, be busy. Of course, there are things to do ...but my prayer is that today you and I can find that rest amidst the chaos of our wonderful lives...

"Be still, and know that I am God."
Psalms 46.10

  1. The world doesn't tell you what to do, you do.

    And the chatter that needs to take a break? That's not you. Listen and observe. That's where you are.
