Be Still

Leave a comment

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 every time.  They were spoken so that my little guy would sit still so I could dig that tiny sliver of wood out! And yes, I have said the same words to my husband when getting out a splinter or looking in his eye…well you know what I mean!

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”.

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

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?

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
