6. Be Still

As I sit here, staring out of my kitchen window, with a cup of coffee, the phrase: “Be still, and know that I AM God,” keeps filtering through my brain.  I admit I have a busy life.  I’m glued to my smartphone most days with my email and internet at my fingertips.  I run from activity to activity, obligation to obligation, without slowing down.  And when I’m at home, I’ll spend time online, catching up on blogs, face book, or other random websites.

But I need to learn to be still.  To drink in God and all that He has for me.  To listen, to meditate, to commune.  To be quiet in Him.  To sit in His presence, all of me.  So that I may grow, to learn, to praise the one who created me.

“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

I'm follower of Christ learning about life, love, and grace in the rainy Northwest. I love coffee, good conversation, baking, and hanging out with my cat.
