Be Still


"Be still and know that I am God" - Psalm 46:10

It's hard to be still. It's hard to quiet our noisy hearts and busy minds. We're so eager to do things, say things, pursue things, accomplish things. It's easier to DO. It's harder to simply BE. For most of us, our lives have dramatically changed since the Stay-At-Home order. Schedules have changed. Routines have changed. Busy people are finding new ways to stay busy. Parents (grandparents) find their lives filled with the new demands of eLearning and setting up ZOOM meetings for their kids. In the wee hours of this morning, I drank my tea and read the Scriptures. As I reflected on Psalm 46, I found myself planning out my day. I jotted notes about emails that needed to be written, people who needed to be called, sermons that needed to be prepped, eNotes that needed to be written. Honestly, I raced through my devotion. Ironically, it's only now (in the late afternoon) that I find myself reflecting on the words I read earlier - specifically v10 "be still and know that I am God." Friends, in the midst of our busyness, let's BE STILL. - BE STILL and SIMPLY BE a beloved child of God. - BE STILL and SIMPLY BE part of God's incredible creation - "fearfully and wonderfully made." - BE STILL and SIMPLY BE aware of God's gentle whispers, God's warm presence with us. - BE STILL and SIMPLY BE loved. For just 15 minutes - at some point tonight or tomorrow morning - let's clear our minds/hearts/schedules and BE STILL. In doing so, we will come to "know" God, who loves you and I so very much. Pastor Caleb
