Be Still

Posted on behalf of Lisa Moody:

My life has been total chaos lately. That seems to be a recurring theme for me.

In the last couple of months, my best friend’s teenage daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy after her first seizure occurred while in the airport in Orlando. That same friend’s husband has been passing out and is getting a pacemaker today (pray please). My family in Texas has moved to Chattanooga, which involved my going to Texas to help pack and drive my Mom to TN. As I write, I am in a hotel in Arkansas after driving to Dallas from Nashville – and half way back in 36 hours. I have a new grandbaby and another on the way. The church plant involves youth activities again and the many new opportunities for ministry. I have my own business and work for a non-profit.

I know that is nothing special. All of our lives look like that. If we are at all engaged in the lives of others, there are demands on our time and our energy.

The words of Psalm 46:10 were ringing in my ears as I drove around Dallas taking my Mom to multiple appointments. The constant traffic and navigating was anything but still.

How can we “be still and know” that He is God, when our lives are never still? We can take our Sunday and focus on who He is and listen to Him as He speaks truth and peace into our lives. What about the rest of the week? Our lives don’t just stop. We can’t stop all activity and sit. How can we be like the perfect Proverbs 31 woman who got up before the sun and was productive all day and be still at the same time?

It’s about my heart. I can be still in my heart, trusting in Him, listening to Him and allowing His Spirit to calm my soul in the midst of chaos. When I am still, I can be at peace in the midst of chaos, knowing that He is God. He is in control.

Take time to let your heart be still today.
