This should probably be a piece on be still and know, HE is God.
Honestly, as I see the word ‘still’, I feel a bit poor me. I am still watching a loved one battle addiction. I am still watching loved one face consequences for actions that I cannot comprehend. I am still exhausted, hurt, angry, disappointed, and deeply saddened. For a few minutes, I stand still in my sorrow for time lost and hearts hurting.
That is how long this has gone on. The years before that were difficult in different ways. I have tried to seclude my feelings in some shell away from my heart and mind. It does not work. For where I am, where I think, where I function, my feelings are there, too. There is no hiding place away from myself. Wherever I hide, my feelings find me. I am struggling with this at the time.
That is exactly why I must stop. I must be still, or let go. I must submit my entire being to God. I must know and faithfully believe that He is God and my life is under his control. My God is greater than my pain. My God is my center. Through my hurt, I will lift my hands to Him. In my life, God will be exalted. Through all we go through, He is our fortress. We cannot live in his fullness when we withhold parts of ourselves from Him.
“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
