Still (Five Minute Friday)

Still.

Be still. 
(Slow down, turn off the music, TV, and all the noise. – this scares me. I do not like the silence.)

“Be still and know that I AM God.”
(He is God and I am not. It seems so obvious and yet, how often to I try to pretend I am god of my own life?)

Listen.
(Again, this requires getting quiet.)

Listen to that still small voice.
(He is in the whisper more often than the shouting)

He is still faithful when we are not.
(Thanks be to God!)

He is still there when all else fails. 
(Thanks be to God!)

He brings the peace to still our hearts, to quiet our souls. 
("He leads us beside still waters...")

And I am waiting, 

Still.
