Being Still

"Be still, and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)  This is one of my all time favorite Bible passages.  This is a message from God that I yearn to follow, but somehow, always fall short.

I "have" to do the laundry, clean the bathroom, vacuum the floors, run some errands, pull the weeds...the list goes on and on.  Granted, there is nothing wrong with any of these things.  They all have their place.  But where does the priority lie?  Unfortunately, for me, it lies in the doing and buying  and accomplishing.

What I really need to do, is just be.  I need to just be with my family.  I need to just  be with my friends.  I need to be in nature and in God's word.  I need to just be still, and stop worrying about what needs to be done.

I challenge myself to be still this week.  Will you join me?
