Hello friends! I hope you all are doing better than I am. I have been in bed for the last three days with a sinus infection/flu and am crawling out today to go to the doctor. I don't have time to be sick!!! So much to do this week and I don't want to miss out!
First of all, our fall bible study is starting tonight and I am so looking forward to beginning a new study with Beth Moore. She just sparks excitement in me about learning God's word. But I will be staying home and resting. Also, tomorrow is the first Parent Teacher Family meeting at Alex's school. I am really ready to jump in and help out at school. Also, I am going to be in MOPS this year and our first meeting is Thursday. I REALLY hope I can make it. I have a hard time resting, even when I am sick. But there is a time for rest- not taking action and just resting. Resting our minds and resting our bodies. I think God wants me to take this opportunity to slow down, regroup, and refocus my priorities. It is hard to hear God when I am too busy with activities. I know he wants me to stop, pray, and listen to what he is saying through His word and through the Holy Spirit.
I will practice being STILL, both mind and body. Will you do this with me? Take a few minutes each day to be utterly still and open your mind to what God has to say. Let me know how it goes! I will let you know how it goes for me!!!
"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him." Psalm 37:7
"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10
"Be still before the Lord, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling." Zechariah 2:13
