BE STILL….

This feeling is coming around again.  I feel Him calling me to Come Away With Him.  I’ve been too busy…again! Things can get so busy, even doing “good things”, but He’s not getting time, the time of worship.  He is jealous of those things that can become idols. 

Are you feeling this with me?  Might be time to get your Bible, paper and pen and get away to a place to BE STILL and give Him your undivided attention in worship .  He is calling me, I know.  When I keep seeing this verse in my daily read it reminds me to stop….. Ps 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”.  Hum….Be Still!  What does that look like to you in your world?

In my files I ran across this poem don’t know who wrote it, but it sounds like what we need….

I NEEDED THE QUIET

 I NEEDED THE QUIET SO HE DREW ME ASIDE.

INTO THE SHADOWS WHERE WE COULD CONFIDE

AWAY FROM THE BUSTLE WHERE ALL THE DAY LONG

I HURRIED AND WORRIED WHEN ACTIVE AND STRONG

I NEEDED THE QUIET THO AT FIRST I REBELLED

BUT GENTLY, SO GENTLY MY CROSS HE UPHELD

AND WHISPERED SO SWEETLY OF SPIRITUAL THINGS

THO WEAKENED IN BODY, MY SPIRIT TOOK WINGS

TO HEIGHTS NEVER DREAMED OF WHEN ACTIVE AND GAY.

HE LOVED ME GO GREATLY HE DREW ME AWAY.

I NEEDED THE QUIET.  NO PRISON MY BED,

BUT A BEAUTIFUL VALLEY OF BLESSINGS INSTEAD..

A PLACE TO GROW RICHER IN JESUS TO HIDE.

I NEEDED THE QUIET SO HE DREW ME ASIDE.

As you listen to this song worship Him as The Only One and….
BE STILL….
