I fill my life and my schedule with good things. I know they are valuable activities. I know I do my best to choose wisely. Nonetheless, my days are full.
So when the unexpected happens, when I’m thrown a curve ball, when I get sick, it’s hard to stop and regroup rather than painfully pressing on.
I can’t say which thing was weighing most heavily on me Sunday morning because it was a swirling cloud of “too much”. While I wasn’t exactly crumbling, I wasn’t rising above it. Worship always helps.
I heard lots of great things from Carl Medearis, special guest speaker at Living Water. Things that I could really use in my life. I felt ready to take his message into my week as fuel.
Then we closed with a song, “Still” by Reuben Morgan. I love to sing and it wasn’t until the second verse that I shut up and closed my eyes. “Know His power in quietness and trust. When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the storm. Father, You are king over the flood. I will be still and know that you are God.”
Know His power in quietness and trust.
What’s missing in my life? Reminders that He is quieting my storm, ruling my flood, lifting me over it all. And what does He ask of me in return? Just to know that He is God.
Probably the most uncomplicated thing in my life – no, definitely the most uncomplicated thing in my life – is how simple my relationship with the Creator of all is meant to be. Be still, Becky, be still.
