PRACTICE STILLNESS

by: Michele-Lyn Ault

“The complexity of our rational minds—so often troubled with deadlines, worries, and tasks—keeps us looking down. It forces us to focus, almost exclusively, on our own stories. It prevents us from looking up to see the bigger story. And the bigger story, the story of all stories, is that God is God.” — Dr. Les Parrott

Being still does not necessarily mean retreating to a quiet place. It means quieting our minds, even in the midst of chaos by not trying to figure everything out. It means putting our minds at ease and letting God be God. We can learn to be attune to God’s presence in even in the calamity and chaos of our lives.

Sometimes we go for long stretches when we do not have time to retreat and go to a quiet place. It wears on our bodies and our souls.

The last couple of weeks have lacked quiet for me, and today I feel so worn. My heart longs for rest and stillness in the midst of my chaos.

I pray for myself and for you all as well. May God put our minds and hearts at ease as He guards our souls with His peace. May we be still and know He is God. {Isaiah 46:10, Philippians 4:7}
