Be Still and Know That I Am God

Description

Lord, help me to be still so that I can hear Your voice and once again be assured that You are God.

Be still, and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10, NRSV).

Good morning, Lord.

As I sit in my cozy room, looking out at what is left of the night sky as well as the peach-hued sunrise fringed by tall pines, I am reminded again of Your quiet but miraculous power.

There is perfection in Your mornings, Lord, before the household is up and the lights come on, before the television news intrudes into the day, and I pick up that rusty bucket of worries, cares and to-do lists that I tend to drag with me throughout my waking hours.

When at night I close my eyes on the weariness, frustration and toil of the day, I turn my circumstances and my world over to You. I go to sleep on my messy situations and wake up to a clean palette of silence and beauty.

You are the source of serenity and loveliness, Lord. You ask us to be still and know that You are God. You even give us beautiful morning hours—and moments of sanctuary throughout a busy day—if only we will notice and take advantage of them.

FAITH STEP: Today, Lord, help me to see the beauty you have made, to find the pockets of time that I know are there. Help me to give thanks and praise and to be still so that I can hear Your voice and once again be assured that You are God.
