undays can be one of my busiest and most stressful day of the week from hitting the snooze button one too many times in the morning, to a child not being able to find shoes or socks, and a fight in the car on the way to church. I am thankful as I sit through the church service, first with the worship music that calms me and then the sermon that hits right at me, and I get revived, encouraged and strengthened. We barely walk out of the church auditorium and our kids are going every which way, one rolls his or her eyes at me, I feel my blood pressure rising as I think of the dinner I planned for a dozen and only five are coming home. I definitely take an afternoon nap, just about every Sunday!
If I’d just quiet down, let things go more, I know I’d do better. If I’d quite down and listen for Him . . . I’d handle the stresses and things that really do not need to be a battle more sanely. I am finding myself writing more and more notes during the service – even a few lyrics from a song, of course sermon notes, but even things that are meant for me during prayers – things I need to pray for and make my own, personally.
And so I hear Him telling me more and more often, not just on Sunday, but throughout the week,
“Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10
And as I do, I hear Him telling in that still small voice,
“Woman, just believe Me.“
I can calm your heart, your fears, the tone in your home . . .
just listen, be quiet . . .
Is He wanting you in a still quiet time to trust Him?
