Psalm 37:7-Be still in the presence of the Lord and wait patiently for him to act.
These are two very difficult things for me to do; Be still and wait patiently for Him to act. I think it’s my ‘get-er-done’ attitude that gets so far out of hand at times. Either that or I tend to talk when I should be listening. I think from the moment I learned to talk, I never stopped.
Yet when I sit in the presence of the Lord, there is such peace and contentment. It must become a dire need each day to begin my day in the stillness of His presence. To hear His sweet voice whisper, ‘Good morning, daughter!’ makes my heart leap with joy. One word from Him changes everything.
May my mind remain in this place of stillness today as my duties at my job threaten to steal my peace. And may He find me here again in the morning, listening, waiting patiently for Him to act.
Have a great day!
