Some days I am just so amazed when God shows his love to me and also to my family and then there are days when I feel like the only sound I hear is crickets when I pray. However, today was a day that our family had been dreading and God came through as he usually does; all is well.
Some times we think that when we hear crickets when praying that that means God is not listening, God doesn’t think you are worthy, or you don’t think you are worthy. When most of the time God just wants you to trust that he does love you and he wants you to remember to, “Be Still and Know I am God”. We seem to think that we can figure out or deal with an issue by letting it consume us, with sleepless nights and all. Letting an issue consume you will not solve anything, although, we still do it. And yet, God never gives up on us. He quietly says, “Be Still…and Know I am God” and he then waits. If you are like me, restlessness takes over and the what if’s show up; what if I do this or that. Then, a quiet calm comes over me and I say, “okay, I understand” and I give it to God, and if you are like me, many times it is the night before the dreaded day, in which I become enlightened.
There will be things going on in your life in which there is nothing you can do about how the outcome turns out. Those are the times when being still is needed most. I can say for me, I can stew and stress about something I have no control over or I can be still and know he is God. I end up kicking myself for wasting my time and sleep, when I could have just listened to his words, “Be Still and Know I am God”.
Thank you God, for waiting for a fool, who would rather stew about it than just to be still and to give it to you from the get-go.
Sweet Mercy…Enjoy Life!
