November 26, 2018 still

Standard

Good morning, DearOne.

Our place was filled with little loves this weekend. Nephews and nieces scattered everywhere, and boy did they have fun. It reminded me of being at my Dad’s Aunt Edna’s house as a child and kids were everywhere. She had fiery red hair and the most unique, joy-filled, eclectic sense of humor. I vividly remember playing the game called “statue” in her yard and a peacock was strutting all through the yard around us. You probably played that game, too. A bunch of kids full of energy and movement. One kid calls out stop and everyone has to stay still in the position they are in. The one who stays still the longest, wins.

It was never easy. Being still, motionless for a long time, does not come easily.

And life is like that at times. So much to do. It all needs to get done and it all seems to be on your shoulders. So you keep on moving. At times you make progress. Other days, it seems like you moved quickly and went nowhere.

As women and wives and moms, we want to have it all ready. Make things right. Have all the solutions. I think at times, I have thought this was my job in life even.

Yet for the last few weeks, He has called me to be still. It’s not coming easy. For in being still, I am discovering – I am helpless to change or fix every circumstance in our lives. I would feel hopeless except in being still, He has brought this confidence ….

I may be still.

But He is not.

“But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:13-14 NLT

“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!” 2 Chronicles 20:17 NLT

Wake up.

Be still.

Know He is working on your behalf.

Go.
