Be Still

by the river

All the worrying and stressing, all the tossing and turning…what did it improve? I kept searching God out…calling, crying, yelling, even CUSSING at him I was so broken, desperate, hopeless.
I kept hearing ONE message all along. “Be still, and know that I am God.” But I couldn’t figure out exactly what that meant, let alone how to DO it.
Yeah, those are “simple” words, but try putting them into practice when your world is on fire and the ground is opening up under your feet.
Be still. Stop fighting. Know God is for you. Know He LOVES you. Know there is a plan; a reason. Know that there are no dead ends, not even death itself.
Be still; let God fight for you. Allow him to do “immeasurably more than all you can ask or image.” Allow him to work everything out for your good.
Let your soul rest. Trust his wisdom and not your own. Trust his timing.
Seek first his kingdom and everything else will fall into place. Eventually.

That’s the hardest part. Enduring the time between the prayer and the answer; the problem and the resolution; the pain and the healing.
So in the mean, mean, terribly mean time, focus on the beauty in your life. Help others and take good care of yourself. Do what’s right in front of you. Don’t think too far ahead. Take hold of the joy of the Lord and keep going forward. Fulfill your purpose. Change is coming!
