“Be still and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” Psalm 46:10
I am currently recovering from a respiratory illness. It has been a somewhat slow process full of relapses because honestly, I do not know how to be still! Curious, I looked up the definition of still in the online Merriam Webster Dictionary. Still: free from noise or turbulence. Hmm…well that is not my life!
I want a closer relationship with Jesus and may be it is time to try something new. I have decided to embark on “the 30 day praise challenge” by Becky Harling. Becky states, “Praise changed me from being fearful, frantic, and insecure to being a calm person filled with passion and purpose.” That sounds promising!
My hope is that this time spent in praise, a time free of noise or turbulence of life, will allow me to hear the still small voice of God. The noise and turbulence will be replaced by pure delight of serenity as I sit and praise My Lord.
Please listen to this great worship song by Jonathan David & Melissa Helser:
