be still and know that he is god……

have you ever tried to be still?  it is the ONLY way i can hear god.  one of my favorite scriptures is about how god is not in the earthquake and he is not in the fire, but he is in the gentle whisper.  I LOVE that….i expect god to speak loudly–and sometimes he does–but mostly, he speaks when i get still and press into him in my heart.  we are on a family vacation right now and i am reminded of how much planning for and taking a vacation is like purposing to have time with him….we plan far ahead so that we have saved enough money, we have to make reservations far ahead so that we get a place large enough (that we can afford) to house all of us.  I plan the food, shop, prepare the food, make sure everyone had a swimsuit–YIKES!  Then there is the packing, loading and driving…making sure everyone has enough to keep them occupied for the 13+ hour trip to the gulf.  once here, it is unpacking, cooking, keeping up with the laundry, keeping the kids safe, etc….so…if i allow this to consume me, I never get to be still and relax.  it takes so much work for us to go on vacation–just as it takes work for me to have time to be still…i have to prepare…me, my family, the day…so many things can pull on me to keep me from it….the enemy knows how to attack in this area (as I am sure he knows your weak spots) :)….i know that when i have purposed to do this….take the time to prepare to have some quiet, still time with HIM, then HE is faithful to meet me….oh, he meets me in the chaos, too…but this is where he wants me….still and quiet…in my heart…when everything else is swirling around me…it just takes work…
