My Soul Be Still

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

Psalm 46:10 ESV

“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.”

Psalm 86:11 ESV

Many times the tasks on our to do lists keep us moving and we don’t take time to sit with the Lord. Last week, while getting ready to wash the dinner dishes, I felt the urge to sit and listen to what He had for me. I jotted this poem as I rested with Him.

My Soul Be Still
My soul be still
to hear God’s will.
Be not full of struggle
but rest fully in His Love.

Hope in His promises.
Have faith in His Word.
His Truths are sure.
With Him I can endure.

There is nothing my God cannot do.
Every morning His mercies are new.
He’s with me every day,
always showing me the Way.
He’s lovingly calling me back to Him.

I cannot earn His Love.
It was freely given from above.
God sent His son to save my soul,
so eternity with Him is possible.
It’s promised to me if I believe.

To hear God’s will,
my soul be still.

After my quiet time with Him, I went back to the dishes with my heart refreshed and ready for my evening plans.

When have you kept going without stopping to rest with the Lord? Sit quietly and meditate on His Word, or listen with your mind open to what He has for you. These times alone with Him give us peace and hope, allowing us to continue with the work that He has given to us.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank You for Your still small voice and the reminder to come away with You. Your presence in our lives brings us comfort and hope. Please continue to call us to You and help us stay connected to You. In Christ’s name, Amen.

Journal: Take some time to be still with the Lord. Record your thoughts and experiences here.
