I wrote this two years a ago.
It’s true again.
I’m just so tired….
Maybe you are too.
I wanted to study and write, but, instead, I felt the Lord asking me to just be still.
To be still and know what I know
… or rather …
remember WHO I know.
I love God’s Word, I love studying it and sharing it…. but all of that is because I love and trust Him.
Because I know Him in real relationship, and because seeking God through His Word is not just some religious exercise for me, I can be still.
I can remember I don’t have to have all the answers to everything I face because I know Who has me and all that concerns me.
I don’t have to be perfect, because He is.
Only He is!
I don’t have to know what tomorrow holds, I just need to remember He is already there!
This morning, it was as if God was whispering, “I have you. Just be still.”
Just BE STILL.
And the Bible study girl didn’t study her Bible… I just remembered what I know to be true from all those early mornings in the Word before.
His Holy Spirit reminded me of truth after truth and calmed my anxious heart once more. He held me close.
It’s true, sometimes it’s okay to just “crawl up in God’s lap” and lay our weary heads down and rest and know He has us.
BUT this I also know— We can have peace, we can be still and know that He is God BECAUSE of ALL those other days, the discipline-that-turned-into-devotion days, the day after day, early morning after early mornings we spend in the Word to know our God.
He, Who speaks through His LIVING WORD also holds us close and carries us and gives us the peace to be still and know.

I so needed this today. Mother’s Day is especially difficult for me because my mother was verbally abusive and treated me with contempt my who
I’m so thankful the Lord used it. 🙏
