Still

So often people stay busy

to keep from feeling alone

 

They don’t slow down

for fear that life will not feel meaningful

 

without activity

 

But I have found

that when I am still

that’s when I realize more than ever

that I’m not alone

 

God is always with me

and being still helps me focus

on His being there

 

Stillness

affirms

His existence

to me

Be still, and know that I am God

– Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

 

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:

12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

– 1 Kings 19:11,12 (KJV)

 

I will ask the Father to send you another Helper, the Spirit of truth, who will remain constantly with you.

– John 14:16 (VOICE)

Knowing

Be still and know that I am God.

 
Be STILL and know that I am God.

Be still and KNOW that I am God.

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am GOD.
In the stillness of regret, of loneliness, of disappointment, of pain

In that stillness that doesn’t feel good

Be near my Lord.

 

Let my stillness not be wrought with discontent

Let it be stillness of abiding

Let it be stillness of knowing

Let it be stillness of observing, and tasting, and resting assured that you are God.

 

May this not be a stillness of mind wanderings and worthlessness

May I be still and know that You are God.

 

Therein lies my contentment.

Therein lies my fullness.

Therein lies my peace.

 

Stillness and Knowing

 

Before God Almighty, Loving Savior, Reigning King.
