Be Still (Psalm 46:10)
(c) 2001 Holly L. Schmidtbleicher
BE STILL your anxious thoughts of mind;
BE STILL when answers you fail to find.
BE STILL impatient, questioning heart,
For I've held the answers from the start.
"Be still and KNOW..."
KNOW that every need I will provide;
KNOW that I will never leave your side.
KNOW that your times are in My hands,
As in your life I work to fulfill My plans.
"Be still and know that I AM..."
I AM He who sees your every tear;
I AM He who calms your deepest fear.
I AM He who gives peace within life's storms,
While those tempests I use to strengthen and form.
"Be still and know that I am GOD..."
GOD, who sent My only Son;
GOD Almighty, Omniscient One.
GOD, who loved you enough to die,
So trust Me, my child; stop asking why.
"BE STILL and KNOW that I AM GOD."
This is the desire of my heart...to be still, and to see God working everything out before me. I desire that every step I take and decision I make- big or small- would be directed by His Spirit.
Today I was literally out of breath at one point, my heart beating so fast... just running from one thing to another, and thinking about the things I had to do. I was forced to just sit down and do nothing. I felt like God was telling me, "Slow Down- RELAX!". How can I be still with two young boys? Lord, I know there is a way...please show me.
