“Be Still” He said…

Do you remember when one of your kids came to you crying with a splinter and you were trying to get it out of that precious finger? “Be still” were the two words out of my mouth. They were spoken so that my little guy would sit still so I could dig that thing out! And yes, I have said the same words to my husband when getting out a splinter, or looking in his eye…if you know what I mean!IMG_3461

The boys and my hubby seem to trust me. They knew that I would get that splinter out. If they were very still, that splinter came out quicker and with less pain. They knew I loved them and did not want them to hurt.

“Be still”…these words can bring quiet, calm, serenity to a very stressful time. We quit moving. We stop. We don’t talk, we just listen. In Hebrew grammar this means “we surrender”. We surrender in order to know that God is in control as “Ribbono Shel Olam, the Master of the Universe”. We surrender, knowing somehow …..”God’s got this”.

I have been sick for the second time in a month and have been able to focus more on “being still”.  Sadly it sometimes takes sickness to slow me down. But I am grateful for the reminder that I can be reminded that God is God and I am not.

In this scripture,God was assuring Israel, just as He reassures us.Be Still

No matter your trials, the winds that blow your way…Jesus spoke “Hush, be still” in Mark (4:39) May our hearts be still and know intimately, by trust that He’s “got it.”

If I could take care of my sons’ splintered fingers, how much more can the Father take care of us?
