It’s Okay to Be Still

When I think of God, I can become speechless. It can be hard to comprehend how much He truly loves each of us.

It’s kind of like (but, not really anything like) when we visit our dream destination or have the most delicious meal that we can only hope will be at the Lamb’s Supper in Heaven. Those kind of moments leave us speechless.

Those undefinable moments fill our hearts with happy memories for years to come. We can cherish those moments in the in-between of waiting for the sun to rise, whether literally or figuratively.

Whether something amazing happens to us on Earth, or if we are consumed with God’s goodness, I believe it’s okay to be speechless. Words don’t always have to be said. We can let a moment speak for itself.

Sitting in silence with only birds chirping, lightning bugs buzzing on blades of grass and a cool breeze around us, we may reflect on all that God has done for us while soaking up His wonderful creation.  There’s nothing like those peaceful moments that are God-given.

Ps. 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God:”

Lamentations 3:22-25

It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.”

 

His mercies are new every morning. Did you catch that? Not every other day or once in a while. EVERY morning.

Because God is merciful, we don’t have to worry about being consumed by the enemy, unless we let the enemy consume us without putting up a fight. With God on our side, anything is possible, including defeating the enemy over and over again if need be.

I think about how God sent His Son to die for me and yet I continue to fail Him daily.  I feel ashamed and embarrassed about how much time I’ve given to the world and not to God. He knows me and my failings and He continues to love me.

God is our refuge. He is the safest place to be.

Even if we don’t know what to say when calling out to God, it’s okay. He knows each of our hearts.

We can be filled with peace knowing that God is always with us.

It’s okay to block out the noise and be still.

We can always reflect on His goodness and His mercies because He has never changed and never will.
