January stillness


The beginning of a new year and already a sense of busyness is upon us, the days fill up with to do lists, to buy lists, to achieve lists. And during the rush, the need to fulfill all these demands, we lose something. We lose the ability to see, to listen, to connect.

Be still, don't rush.
Don't miss the whispers carried on the winds of His love.
Be still, don't rush.
Don't miss the smile, the hand reaching up, the request for a moment.
Be still, don't rush.
Don't miss the beauty in the everyday, the joy in the craziness, the peace in the chaos.

Be still and know that He is.

What a beautiful, genuine post, Skye. It is so hard, sometimes, to leave time for God to work in our (my) lives.

It is hard to be still, it was good to read this and remember.
