  1. Be Still and Know

    Be Still and Know

    In my life I have faced many struggles.

    I am human and by nature I have grown sin weary and overburdened.

    My hands have worked alone, in vain to build masterpieces
    that always fall short of perfection.

    In the midst of despair, I place my discouraged heart
    in the hands of the one who softly whispers,
    “Be still and know that I am God.”

    I place my confidence in the one who faithfully works
    to do what is positively right for me.

    I rely on the perfect knowledge that keeps Him from doing
    anything in my life that is not exactly what I need.

    He is the Lord of creation, and yet He is committed to gently
    knocking at the door of my heart.

    I adore the God whose love is so pure that He sent His son to
    live a perfect life for me. His love is so holy that He sent
    His son to shed His blood on the cross for me.

    I treasure the God who will never stop forgiving me.

    My hope is in the one who knows the depths of my heart and still
    loves me so passionately and watchfully.

    The one who softly whispers,

    “Be still and know that I am God.”

  4. Our masterpieces will always fall short of perfection. But let us not be discouraged and in despair. His eye is on the sparrow and he watches over us... In fact, he has given us a job to do, a purpose. Let's go out and fulfill it as best we can.
