Be Still


This morning I didn’t turn on gospel music. I just listened to the quiet. The Psalmist begins with, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Then he invites us into an understanding in vs 8, “come and see what the Lord has done.” 

And our passage, vs 10! “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”   

It is sad that we have been invited to be still, but haven’t done so. And now we really must. Not for what the world is doing,  but to watch what God is doing. 

In this stillness we find our peace, we find our rest, we find our creativity, we find ourselves. And we find our resolve to trust what God is doing . . a. God is with us. Oh, that’s verse 11. Be still. enough for now.

More

Aren’t you tired? Then be still and listen. God is bigger than this storm. Things are crazy but you don’t have to be crazy with it. God is so much more. Yes take precaution. And then watch what Bod is doing. enough for now.

Who Do You Say?


“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God” (Matt 16:15,16)                                      

Each day we live out our lives answering that one question-  Who do you say I am? We answer by our actions toward others and ourselves. Or actions will cause us to walk more in what is truth, what is positive because he is truth, he is positive. How are you waking? “Who do you say I am?” enough for now.

Don’t Let It Get You

Do you know how hard life tries to get you down? Don’t let it. Watch what God is doing. My new word is “Crazy will happen; but you don’t have to get crazy with it.” Don’t let it. Keep watching what God is doing. enough for now.

Day by Day

Day by day we meet new challenges. Just when you thought it was going well, and junk crops up. It happens. Junk happens. It’s part of the challenge. It's how you handle the junk that shows you who you are. You do know you are larger than the junk. If you are listening - you can handle it- you will get past it - you will survive. And you will be stronger, wiser. Don't miss the joy of this adventure because you are worried about challenges - you will never live. And he promised life more abundantly. enough for now.

Each New Day

Each new day we can learn something else. Each new day we can see anew. We can recognize the awesomeness of what God is doing in our life. Too often we forget that each new day is a present to be unwrapped in joy. It is not promised. Let that sink in. 

Accept this day as special for you. Open your eyes and see. Open your heart and feel. enough for now.

Celebrate

Celebrate something larger than a new year. Celebrate that because of God’s great love for us his compassions are new every morning!  Celebrate daily that right there. That celebration will remove negativity. That right there. enough for now.
