In this moment, this very second, take time to breathe. The laundry will get done and the dishes will be there when you go back to them. The dog will get fed and dust will still be on the coffee table. Although this paints a very messy picture, and by the way I am not suggesting being unorganized or that you never clean again, but what I am saying is that there is something so much more important that you must do first today. You must stop, get still, and breathe. As you breathe, your spirit will becomes quiet and guess what you will start to sense our sweat Savior’s presence. Just sit and commune with Him. Bask in his presence and let him bathe your soul with his unfailing love. Starting to feel calm? Now you are ready to read from His Holy Word and hear Him speaking directly to you. Just listen, let Him speak first, after all He has been waiting for you. This won’t take long. His voice will guide you and instruct you for this day. This time if only for 10 minutes will calm your anxieties and bring the cares of this life and this world back into their proper perspective. Yield yourself to His will for this day. Don’t struggle or resist. He knows what’s best.
Just trust and obey. Be ever so thankful for this great gift of such a wonderful loving Father and His desire to take our ordinary lives and give them extraordinary purpose. Now you are equipped and ready to go back to your day. Have a Blessed one.
“Be still and know I am God…”
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song, I praise him.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my loving eye on you
