Dichotomy Series – Be Still

There are times when I do everything that I know to do, and then I look around at what still needs to be done and it just seems absolutely overwhelming.  Sometimes we’re in bad situations because of our own choices and mistakes, and sometimes it’s just life and circumstance that have subtly accumulated when we weren’t looking and are now an insurmountable obstacle looming on the horizon.

At that point our ‘fight or flight’ instincts kick in and we either run away into some type of avoidance tactic, or we pull ourselves up by our boot straps and try to do something more than what we’ve already been doing.  At some point though, we run as far as we can run and we’re so exhausted that we our legs refuse to carry our feet another step.  We’ve worked all 24 hours and our bodies and minds begin shutting down.

One of my favorite verses in scripture says this, “Be still, and know that I am God” (psalm 46:10)  I don’t think He wants for us to lay back and do nothing, but I do think that sometimes He steps into our frantic pace and speaks to our storms and brings the gentle calming moments where we are brought back to that place of balance and center.  Grace, when it really finds it’s way into the space in which we live, is truly amazing.

Here’s a link where you can read the entire passage:  Psalm 46
