Good morning, DearHeart.
When we were little we played a game called freeze tag. Do you remember that? 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.
Yet for the last few weeks, He has called me to be still in things I can’t control. Be calm. 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.
“And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today.
The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:13-14 ESV
“You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. 2 Chronicles 20:17 ESV
Stay still. Freeze tag.
God is moving for you.
