Psalm 46:10 – "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
In an average day, we are bombarded with 3,000 messages a day. We are glued to our crackberries. Our computers are on 24×7. Our inboxes are full and while trying to get through the pile, we are popped with IMs, facebook posts, tweets.
Be still. How else can we hear the voice of our Good Shepherd? Without carving out some moments of solitude, we don’t stand a chance.
Even if we get those moments of stillness to be with the Lord, our minds continue to race. We are so distracted that we can’t be alone for a minute before thoughts come flooding in. This is a topic I am going to be exploring more… but for now, please seek out some still spaces in your life. Then, we can talk about what to do from there.
