Peace, Be Still
"Be still, and know that I am God! (Psalm 46:10 NRS)
“Where did the summer go? Two months ago I had all of these great intentions. Now it’s almost time for back to school!”
My friend’s frustration certainly mirrored my own at times. How often have I lamented, “If I just had the time I would…” But then the much-needed gift of time was wasted.
Or was it?
Engaging life at a different and slower pace is a gift. Give yourself permission not to have to produce every moment. There is a saying, “We are human beings, not human doings.”
Simply ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’ is a gift in itself.
A scripture meditation to help you relax and enjoy that difference.
Sit comfortably in a place free from distractions for just three minutes.
Breathe deeply and focus on one line for each minute
“Be still and know that I am God.”
May the peace that surpasses all understanding be with you now and forever more. Amen
