Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God.” I am challenged to take this call to stillness beyond the mountain top experiences and bring it to the busy valleys of life. I am slowly realizing that each breath, each encounter with people and Creation, is unique and needs to be treasured rather than avoided or endured. I pray that our loving Lord will bless and deepen our encounters, giving us rest and refreshment in the busyness we encounter each day.

Everyday is God

“There’s no place to go to find God and no place not to go…Everyday life is where God is most active and where holiness is to be found. As Jesus Christ said, ‘the Kingdom of God is within you.’  Luke 17:21”

God is our refuge and strength,
    always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
    and the mountains crumble into the sea.
 Let the oceans roar and foam.
    Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! 
 
Psalm 46:1-3
