Back to the bench

Psalm 37:7a – “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him”

This week, I have felt so busy! I’m starting to work more. My kids are still doing all that they do. My house still needs to be cleaned. We are getting ready to leave for spring break. Satan is still beating down the door of my heart. Man, crazy stuff!

But this morning, while I was asking God to show me what He wanted me to do for this blog today, He whispered this to my heart, “Be still.”

What? Be still! You know all that I am responsible for! But all the while, He just wants me to clear my mind and be still sometimes. No, this should not be an avenue for sleep. Although, if I had not had my coffee in reaching distance, I might have attempted that road.😊

We have all had times when our walk with The Lord was calm and peaceful. We walked with Him and listened to Him. But then we get distracted. Just like the devil wants. When we are distracted, we can’t be productive for Him.

So, here I am, princess. Trimming the bushes along the path of the garden in my heart. It was once a peaceful path, but now is quite overgrown. I want to get back to that bench where I just sit and listen to Him while the worries of the world pass me by.
