Psalms 46:10 NIV
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Life is busy and quiet time for yourself and with God seem to always take a backseat to everything else in life. For a couple months, our schedule is a bit slower. Not quite so many after school activities for the kids which makes our evenings more manageable. It has allowed me to have some much needed quiet time for prayer and reflection as well as memorizing these verses. For my birthday this year I received two books that allow me to dig deeper in my time with God. One of them I received from my secret sister at church,SEVEN PRAYERS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER by Stormie Omartian and the other from my sister-in-law, Julie, THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD: Inspiration from the Book of Psalms by Lance Wubbels. I have skimmed through both of them and have already found some words that I needed to hear.
We all need to take time to Be Still, place our focus on Him and have a conversation with Him. Allow yourself to be refreshed and remember that you are important to God. Everything will get done and if it doesn't, it must not have been that important. Be Still for yourself and for you family. Take a few moments today.
