Be Still

Be still and know I am many times have you read that verse?  I know me personally many times, I even say it is one of my favorite verses in the bible and it is.  But why?  Why is it my favorite and what does it mean to me?
I think it is one of my favorites because it is something that I am constantly reaching for, trying to have in my life.  It means to me a quietness, a time alone with God, not just to talk to God, read His word but to hear Him not just in His word but in that still quiet moment, in my life, in my heart.
We live in a busy, constantly moving world.  People and things are always reaching for us, pulling at us, their is noise everywhere.  Be still, who has time?  
This verse is something that has been on my mind and heart a lot.  I see it, I hear it, it in my heart and mind.  But what do I do about it?  I post it, I share it, but do I live it?
I am taking a break from most social media and will be searching for the meaning of Be still and know I am God for me. It might be a day and it might be much longer, I don't know.  The part that I keep hearing in my heart is "be still".  I need to find a time, a way to be still, to not just talk to God but listen.  What does God have to say about me and my life?  What does He want me to do, not do, feel, not feel?  I don't know because I have not been still and quiet long enough to hear.
Dear Lord, I pray that you will show me how to slow down, be still and hear You.Be still and know I am God....... but are you still?So thankful that God never gives up on us.

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
