...before God is faith in action!
Drewie and I always enjoy these little brain twisters...how can standing still be action...pondering this today. Makes you go hmmmm...
So many times I find myself in a hurry...trying to do it all myself without stopping to really think the next step through...getting a quick fix, a patch, anything is better than nothing happening...
....or is it?
Several times on vacation this past week walking on the beach....I would just stop...tipping my face up to the warm sun, ...letting the breeze whisper over my face...the ebb and flow of the ocean swirling around my feet. It took strength to actually stand still...the waves tugging you into the ocean little by little..and before you know it...you are knee deep...(and I am not a good swimmer) ;-)
Standing still is not easy when life is tugging at you. sometimes making you feel like you are literally getting sucked in...standing before God IS an action of faith...resisting the tug of the world around us...so many things vying for our attention...droning out the gentle voice of God.
Today I am going to practice "standing still"...soaking up the day God has for me and not filling it with busyness. Is your soul restless today...want to stand with me today and be still and listen to what God has planned before we try and run the race?
Isaiah 40:31. Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (the Mellie paraphrased version)
