Sure, the Bible says, “be still and know that I am God.” I know that, but the world is spinning out of control. The main focus of the news today has to do with which bathrooms are acceptable to use, by whom, and who we have become. I’ve heard of parents changing the sex of their child at the age of 8 years, because they were showing tendencies for the opposite sex. We are asked to accept and tolerate everything under the sun. We make concessions for every practice because if we don’t, we are seen as politically incorrect. How can I be still??
You’re a mother of small children. The day is running amok. Chaos reigns in what should be a quiet, comfortable place to nurture them. You look like a mess, there are dishes in the sink, laundry to be folded and unmade beds. Be still! Ha!!!
You just got news that your parent has to be admitted to a nursing facility. All these years this person has been a rock in your sight. Now they need everyday attention to do the things they took for granted yesterday. Relax!
Your spouse lost his job, the kids need braces, the car needs repair, there’s no extra money for anything. Where is God in all this?
It s taken me a lifetime to realize that He’s right there with us during the good times and the bad. He never lets go of us unless we refuse to acknowledge Him. The easiest way to get through the garbage of life is to be quiet – let go – breathe – let God do what He does best. Through those silent moments of submission you are giving God the reins. He will lead, comfort, protect and straighten out all the bumps in the road.
Sssshhhh. GOD HAS THIS!
