Be still and know that I am God...

   
     It has been ten days since my last post. I got too occupied with work in the office, family concerns, church and community activities and health problem. There were days when my schedules tangled, leaving me so anxious and stressed out. I seemed angry but I was not. I was just frustrated because I couldn't get things done.
                       
                           "Be still and know that I am God."

     I longed for silence. I wanted to be alone. I needed a break. I asked myself as to why I had these feelings when everything that I was doing was for the Lord.  When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is to clasp my hands in prayer. Still, feelings of inadequacies and anxiety beset me.  I was overwhelmed.

                           "Be still and know that I am God."

     "Be still."  I heard this whisper.  "...and know that I am GOD." ...it continued and persisted. Shutting myself away in prayer, in the comfort of my room, I closed my eyes and listened to that loving and assuring whisper..God was speaking to my heart.

                         "Be still and know that I am God."
        Life in this present age can be too burdensome and all I needed that moment was a breather...a pause....a prayer....to be spiritually calm....to be still before God and know that He is God, my strength and refuge, a very present help in times of trouble, my God who never fails in His promises.

                         "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)
