Being Still

"Be still and know that I am God"

Psalm 46:10

Being Still.  

Is that a challenge for you like it is for me?   It seems that in a world where multi-tasking is the norm, and a to-do list is getting longer each day,  I tend to run around in circles, but end up where I started... does that make sense??     But I know that being still is essential to my well being and my ability to connect with my inner-most soul and listen to God.  That is why I chose this verse for my first Lenten post.

This season of Lent is a time to make some new habits, and I am going to try to be more "present"... in the moment, without my thoughts or actions wandering to what's next.

This scene is from one of my favorite morning walks... a quarter mile from my house on the way to a neighborhood lake.  I've learned that when I start my day on a walk like this, my mind shifts from the tasks of the day to talking to God, I open my eyes to observing nature around me and His glorious works... birds singing, flowers blooming... my whole day is always better.  So, that's what I hope to do each day, knowing it will be good for my mind, body and spirit!

"Let the morning bring word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life."

Psalm 143:8
