Sunday Style Over 50 - Be Still

Sunday Style Over 50 - Be Still

Psalms 46:10 (NLT) 
“Be still, and know that I am God! 
 I will be honored by every nation. 
 I will be honored throughout the world.”

Being still is something I find difficult.  The world is always swirling around me.  Everything is so instant.  

Yet, it's something I crave.  The stillness of the morning is such a beautiful thing, especially early in the morning.  It's quiet, like the world is still sleeping except for me and the birds.

Sitting quietly in the morning and being still with The Lord, is incredibly refreshing.  It revitalizes my soul and mind.

Luke 10:39-42 (NLT)
Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”

But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary, found it easy to sit and be still, Martha found it difficult.  Hmmm...  I know I'm a bit more like Martha, but I want to sprinkle a little Mary in there too.

When we find time to 'Be still', we will find that we are more refreshed.  Our minds are more sharp and ready for the day, because we've spent time communicating and resting in the presence of our creator.

Have you ever had your thoughts, absorbed by a trivial matter?  Like your mind was spinning it's wheels stuck in the mud?  I know I have, but when I bring that 'thing' to The Lord, it's like my mind starts gaining traction and I'm able to move on to more important things.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLT)
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

Taking time to 'Be still, and know that He is God', keeps us in close communication with Him.  I want His thoughts to be my thoughts.
