STILL





Still...it is the word that I determined to understand in 2010.
I knew nothing of stillness. Nothing of being in the moment.
Nothing of peace or trust.
I long tended to overmanage, overworry, overfrustrate, overexpect, overplan and overcompensate.
But these words got hold of me,
"Be Still and Know that I Am God."
These words became bigger than my need for self-fulfillment.
Nothing He asks of me is ever easy.
I always want to jump in with both feet and get busy.
I have learned a lot about being still.
And stillness continues to be a huge part of my process.
Stillness has quietly taught me to hold my stuff up to the light and dig deep into my motivation and ask why?
Why am I trying to manipulate, control, avoid or indulge my self?
Is it because I don't trust Him?
Most often it is.
And how silly am I to think that my plan could ever be better than His.
