Delight in the Stillness

Be still.

Be still.

Be still.

Those are two of the most comforting words to me and yet the most difficult to do. Yesterday was a day I needed stillness; stillness with the One who silences every wave of fear, doubt, frustration, hurt, stress, and disappointment.

I found myself repeating those two words to myself over and over again around 6 pm as I was cooking dinner. I opened up my Bible app to something I read just a few days earlier in Psalm 37...

Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act...
The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.

It soothed me yet again. Be still. Let those words sink in. Be still. Quit thinking about what’s waiting on you after this... just be still. Relax your shoulders, let your face relax and be still.

“Wait patiently with me while I bless you. Don’t rush into My Presence with time-consciousness gnawing at your mind. I dwell in timelessness: I am, I was, I will always be. For you, time is a protection; you’re a frail creature who can handle only twenty-four-hour segments of life… Though you are a time-bound creature, seek to meet Me in timelessness. As you focus on My Presence, the demands of time and tasks will diminish. I will bless you and keep you, making my Face shine upon you graciously, giving you Peace.”  - Sarah Young in Jesus Calling

Try to find some time today to spend with our Father who delights in every detail of our lives, who holds our hand, and who will not let us fall. Delight in the stillness...
