Today after cleaning up my apartment I felt so relaxed. I loved how quiet, clean, and serene it was. Perfect time to sit and be still, it was awesome. 5 years ago

Of course this is a daily goal, living life out of control, my control and letting God be in control of who I am and what He wants me to be. Daily. When you realize that God loves you and has a plan and you still fight to be in control. 5 years ago
I sat out in the yard almost in the field after it was freshly mown and just waited until the deers began to cross. I wanted to run and get a camera, but then I decided to not make it about capturing them. The sun was setting and it was awe… mazing. 5 years ago
This morning before we even got up we prayed for a peaceful and productive day and thanked God for being together. It feels good to start my day like that. 6 years ago
To me, “be still and know” means to be still and have faith. Even when we have no feelings or emotions, or even when our feelings and emotions are ones of frustration (which we should not harbor) or disappointment, we can still commune with God through faith. If we believe that God dwells in us and loves us, then why do we need feelings to prove it? We can simply look at Jesus within our soul using faith. Even though this communion with God is invisible, and it often feels like nothing, it is very profound and deep. Be still and know. 6 years ago
I stayed late the other night praying. I’ve been having a lot on my mind, and it’s hard to sleep so the other night I just prayed, I also wrote in my prayer journal and it felt so good. It was so quiet in the apartment. It was good to relax and let God take care of my problems. What a concept, uh? haha 6 years ago
...for a few moments…yet, it was enough to know :)
I sat on the grass in the garden, eating an orange, feeling the warmth of the sun and just being still
It was great! ;) 6 years ago
Just an total feeling of unworthiness, unworthiness at the love that God gives me, the care he takes of me, the blessings he allows me. 6 years ago
First off a sad note, the little catipillar who has been greating me at the front door every morning at 5:30am to smile and remind me to be happy while I work out, got squished, don’t know who, but it was pretty tragic, that happened yesterday, then today I work up and there in the bush right by the door was a bird’s nest with two little blue eggs in it. How awesome is God… 6 years ago
It is a quiet, cloudy, fall day. I felt God’s presence this morning unexpectedly. It was such an overwhelmingly peaceful feeling. 6 years ago
I told my best friend last week that I rarely have times where I am totally caught up in the presence of God. But like I told her, when I have them…Wow!
If only I were the kind of person who felt super-spiritual all the time, but life feels so ordinary most of the time.
I guess that helps me appreciate the times it doesn’t. 6 years ago
I need to shut up and listen to and for God more. I have “open mouth, insert foot” syndrome big time.
I am amazed by my capacity to unknowingly say stupid things just when I think I am doing ok.
May God shut my mouth unless I am praising Him. 6 years ago
Last weekend, I had another of those times when I felt God’s presence so closely. I live for these times.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord

But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior
Life is so hard for so many of us. I read this passage this weekend at a worship service and thought of a friend who I know is not in an easy situation. I thought of the times it applied to me. Be still and know . . . 7 years ago
Today is Easter and it reminded me that I should try to be still and aware that God is present, even when it is not obvious like it was this morning. So many days I hurry through life without pausing to reflect on God’s presence in the ordinary.
In those unexpected times, in unexpected circumstances, His presence in beautiful and I seem to find it when I am just going along with my routine life.
But I know there are many times that other circumstances are happening all around me, where if I just open my eyes, be still and know, I will see Him there. 7 years ago
I will take a few moments to listen to the rain. The grass already seems to have forgotten that’s it’s January, but it’s been so mild this year, who hasn’t forgotten. 7 years ago
Busy day at work, running here and there, thoughts drifting through my head about getting home, cleaning the house, picking up after the holidays, relaxing, kinda pitying myself for all the hard work I’d put in over the holidays, and there was Bill, taking a few moments to eat, I headed over thinking I would tease him, like he usually does me, I blurted out some comment to this kind older man about him partying on New Year’s, he looked up and said hi, but then went on to explain that he had spent NEw Year’s in the hospital with his wife, she had been there for two weeks, went in with a simple illness and had been found to have cancer in her lungs and brain. My heart felt so heavy, I could cry right now just thinking of the pain in his voice, I stopped my bustling, and listened for a while, I thought about my dad and how numbed I had felt in the beginning. I told Bill that I would pray for his wife Darlene, and ask if you read this that you do the same. That God grants them the peace that only he can. 7 years ago
I have a little devotional sent to me through email every day and today was about God blessing the humble, made me think about whether or not I am humble. Kind of a do I silence my horn or toot it, I am afraid sometimes I make too much noise. Better to let rewards come, than to demand them. Can I get a muzzle for my trumpet. 7 years ago
