Stillness

“We all hunger for stillness, whether we know it or not.  There is a great attack on us to distract us from this powerful place with God.  Be still and know that He is God.”  ~based on Psalm 46:10

I long for this, for the peace, the quietness, the nothing for a time…..listening for the small still voice of God in the quiet.  Blessings, Lisa

Stillness

Ireland 2_0029

It’s good to find quiet, to find a place where there is no noise.  When I discover those places, my soul sighs almost audibly.  “Aaahhh….”  As a musician and a mother of 3, there are sounds, notes, laughter, conversations, “discussions” between siblings (!), washing machines, phone calls, doors opening and closing.

But sometimes, it’s quiet.  And I treasure those moments.  As much as I love the noisy love and excitement and hubbub.  When we were in the Rock of Cashel here in this photo, we could feel the quiet and the stillness.  Talking seemed inappropriate.  “Be still, and know that I am God” rang through my mind.   Standing, breathing, knowing, sensing that Love that keeps extending itself through all our life.   On your busy Monday, I pray that you can find one little moment of your day like that.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa

Being Still

“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” – Mark 4:39

“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” – Isaiah 30:15

It’s Monday, and God is still God.  Nothing has changed; He’s got you and always will.  Stillness.  Blessings, Lisa
