Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nation; I will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10) Being still is not hard to do right now, but it’s the words that come after the ‘AND’ that I’m focusing on right now. The faith and trust of knowing that He is God is changing the still moments.
I’m learning more from an empty calendar than I ever imagined, and there’s freedom in knowing that I just have to think about today, I can’t plan for tomorrow because I don’t know what tomorrow will bring.
This time has been such a powerful reminder of that for me. I have been reading the book of James, and God is really humbling me as I read. This verse in James lays this principal out there ‘You should know better than to say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to the city. We will do business there for a year and make a lot of money!” What do you know about tomorrow? How can you be so sure about your life? It is nothing more than mist that appears for only a little while before it disappears. You should say, “If the Lord lets us live, we will do these things.” (James 4:13-15)
“This Letter Is To You.
The you that’s had a rough week. The you that seems to be under constant storm clouds. The you that feels invisible. The you that doesn’t know how much longer you can hold on. The you that has lost faith. The you that always blames yourself for everything that goes wrong.
You are incredible. You make this world a little more wonderful. You have so much potential and so many things left to do. You have time. Better things are coming your way so please hang in there. You can do it.”
