Stillness for the Soul-drained

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;”

‭Psalm‬ ‭37:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The Hebrew word used for “be still” in this verse doesn’t mean for your body not to move, it means to be silent.

It means to silent your mind, quiet the overthinking and obsessive worrying.

Stop talking about it.

Stop thinking about it.

Stop dwelling on it.

Calm your mind.

Clear your thoughts.

Create space in the silence.

Enter in a quiet space and wrap your soul in the love of God.

I know it is hard. You are worth it.

God is there waiting to meet you and you don’t need words, you need Him.  

The longer you stay there, the stronger this “stillness muscle” grows, the more you will capture the grace of God to apply and live in today.

It is how you fill up your tired soul.

You Get to Choose

Don’t let your situation dictate your reaction.

You choose how to respond.

You decide what words you speak.

You choose how you do your work.

You can’t always choose what must be done but you can always choose how you act doing it.

“Well-spoken words bring satisfaction; well-done work has its own reward.”
‭Proverbs‬ ‭12‬:‭14‬ MSG

Before your day even begins, get with God and choose together how you will respond to your current situation.

You Choose

Don’t let a situation dictate your reaction.

You choose how to respond.

You decide what words you speak.

You choose how you do your work.

You can’t always choose what you do but you can always choose how you act doing it.

“Well-spoken words bring satisfaction; well-done work has its own reward.”
‭Proverbs‬ ‭12‬:‭14‬ MSG

Before your day even begins, get with God and choose together how you will react to the wide world you live in.
