Sitting In The Stillness

Do you ever just sit still for a few minutes? Maybe you do some thinking or you just take in the quietness that is around you. I know that for me sitting in the stillness is sometimes all I need.

Let's be real, life can be hectic sometimes a lot of the time. Things to do, places to be, and goals you have set are all examples of some of the things that can make our life a hectic one.

It can be easy to get caught up in the mile-long list of things that need to be done and it can be just as easy (if not easier) to stress ourselves out about said list.

That's where the stillness comes in. Sitting in the stillness can give you that much needed millisecond within your day to sit back and breathe. When you stop moving and relax you begin to realize that those things around you really don't need to take your sanity away from you. You realize that those things truly aren't as important as they may seem.

When you sit in the stillness you also give yourself a chance to listen to what the Lord wants to say. You can have a meaningful conversation without distraction.

One of my favorite verses that I actually have hung up in my room is Psalm 46:10 which reads "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." It is a simple reminder to be still in His presence.

Another one that I really like is Psalm 62:1 "Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him."

The last one that I will share is Exodus 14:14 "The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."

Couldn't have said it any better.

When we take the time to sit in the stillness we learn and grow. We can listen to the Lord's words and let them take away the stress. No need to worry.

I want to be more adamant about taking that designated quiet time throughout the day. I know that the reward can be overwhelmingly good and I want to take that opportunity to grow. Will you do the same? ♥
