Be Still

 

So today, maybe we all just need to inhale God’s grace and exhale His praise. Maybe we all just need to sit still in His presence and recognize who He is and what He means to us in all of our ups and downs, highs and lows, in and outs, faults and all. Yeah, it’s a hard day of just plain nothing but “All gone wrong” and everything seems so misshapen and outta sorts. Where’s the joy when the world’s in a mess and your world follows close behind in it’s messed up footsteps? The joy you knew yesterday took a dive into the deep and it kinda seems like it’s gone forever. Here in this dreadful “now” moment, you’re emptied of emotion and the pain felt in the heart can’t feel the hurt anymore because it’s just too weary to feel anymore. Where do you go when worries have numbed your spirit and hung your beautiful soul out to dry? Where is your refuge when your world hangs by a thread, and the thing you feared most has taken its position? The Psalmist in Psalm 46 tells us, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it’s watered roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”

Beautiful soul, and you, when all is lost, the Psalmist goes on to bring words of hope to the reader, “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the Holy Place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day…Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Oh, what comfort for our crumpled spirit and our broken world. God is in charge and He will be exalted in your situation and in your circumstances if you rest “Still” in Him and know that He is sovereign over all. Rest then today beautiful one ~ right now ~ you who are broken, and shattered in your brokenness just be still in Him.

“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Psalm 46:10

Sweet Soul Refreshment

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when it’s all said and done, sometimes you just can’t undo it and sometimes you don’t have to! It’s really ok because sometimes it just needs to be said and done. So, for today just relax, and sit back to rest in the thought that God’s angels are all about you and all around you and on your every side of life to just be there when the going gets tough and where the rubber meets the road. Yes, you are covered and not one weapon formed against you will succeed. Isaiah 54: 17 reminds us of that in one of my favorite verses ~ that, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

So, beautiful soul ~ you have a rich heritage in God’s protection. You are clothed in His righteousness and His strength and He will stand with you and for you against any one who rises up against you.  See how strong you are in Christ! Just breathe in deeply and inhale the sweet, grace of God’s love and exhale praise to the God who carries your cares in His sovereign hand of divine protection from the elements of your journey.

Come apart sweet and beautiful soul to a place of quiet solace and refuge, where our sovereign, gracious God serves the refreshment of Living Water to the weary and oppressed. Drink deeply of it and be refreshed in your spirit, and find healing for your soul.
