Dear Readers

I have most definitely let this blog fall by the wayside over the past few months. I’m starting fresh though with a new blog that I’ve got a lot of plans for. http://brittanyleigh162.wordpress.com
I would love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!
Within the next week or so I will be deleting this blog completely and only using the new one. Thank you all for your support and for continuing to read even when I strayed from my original goal. You’re all amazing.

Be Still and Know

This morning I woke up with a to-do list a mile long in my head. I had errands I needed to run, things to do around the house, people to call… And I began doing those things and then stopped with the conviction that I hadn’t taken the time to read my Bible or pray this morning.

I want to be very honest and say that I have not been diligent lately in spending time with the Lord, but yesterday and today I have had the desire to be in the word.

So I say down on my bed and opened my Bible to my favorite Psalm. Psalm 46. When I got to the end, one verse stuck out to me: be still and know that I am God. be still.

In my normal routine I am rarely ever still. I fidget all the time and am always running around trying to get things done. But that verse reminded me that we have to slow down and choose to spend time with the One who created us.

As I sat there and forced myself to be still I started feeling peace come over me and I began going through the names of God that I know and who I know God is. It was wonderful to think of how magnificent He is, but that He loves us deeply. It’s all in His perfect character.

Take a break today from the hustle and bustle of life and remember to be still before the Lord, knowing that He is God.
