"Be still and know that I am God..." -- Psalm 46:10
In times of uncertainty this scripture verse can be a source of much comfort and strength. But it sounds much easier than it is in practice. It is hard in today's world to 'be still.'
We have become acclimated to constant noise. Many report that they cannot sleep without some sort of noise in the background, because it is 'too quiet.' But it is important to include in one's day a period of complete silence, if even for 15 minutes, for meditation, quiet reflection, and prayer. It is then that we can reaffirm deep in our spirit that we 'know that He is God.'
Knowing that God is God comforts us in time of upheaval and strengthens us in doing what we have to do to survive.
Prayer: "O God, help us to become quiet and still so that we can know You are God. And in so doing let us find your peace. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."
Music for meditation: "As the Deer"--a symphonic arrangement of the traditional hymn. Beautiful!
