"Being Still" Casual Plaid and Denim Vest
I heard a song the other day called "Be still" from the words of the scripture Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God" I tried to reflect on those words for a minute, thinking about how hard it is to just be still, sit still, stop preforming. And then a thought came across my mind about being still. Not only is that stopping and trusting in the Lord, but going deeper than that, for me, being still is about being present.
You can probably relate to me in the difficulty it is to be present. To be 100% where your feet are. Not thinking about the past, or worrying about the future, but only being focused on the now. This seems near impossible! But the now is all we are guaranteed.
So when my brain starts running away with me today, I will remember to stop, be here, and be still. Meditating on these verses throughout the day should help us stay in the present:
Isaiah 43:18-19 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own
