I’ve been going through some stuff lately. Some of it has been good and pleasant … some of it, well not so much. And throughout the mental and emotional processing of both the pleasant and unpleasant, I’ve been silent.
Listening to my heart, listening to my head. Trying to quiet those voices (heart and head) enough to hear the voice of Wisdom speak to me.
“Be Still, and know that I am God.”
But it’s hard to BE STILL when your emotions are on overdrive (pleasant or unpleasant), and your reasoning has your head feeling like there is a professional ping-pong match going on between your temples. (anyone else understand that analogy??)
Sometimes you just have to find a quiet spot, sit down on a tree stump, and breathe.
Sometimes you have to unclench your hands from the thing you have been trying to hold onto, and surrender it to God.
Sometimes you have to stop fussing … rest your head upon His chest … and know that He is big enough.
Big enough to take it and to know what to do with it.
Big enough to see farther down the road than you can see.
Big enough to do whatever needs doing, handling, correcting, etc.
“That’s enough! Now know that I am God! I am exalted among all nations; I am exalted throughout the world!” (Psalm 46:10 CEB)
That’s where I’m at today. How about you?

more like a basketball match than ping pong for me 😄🏀
Haha! Another great word picture! 🏀🏀🏀.
Yup. Shows spoken! I can’t find a tree stump down here but it sure sounds inviting 💞
I am grateful that God doesn’t require a specific place or ‘alter ‘…. his chest will do nicely.
