Being Still

April 7, 2012

Be still and know that I am God…Psalm 46:10

The busyness of modern life can keep us feeling that everything is urgent and needs to be done now. Technology, although wonderful in many ways for giving us instant results could cause us to lose the ability to slow down. For myself I can feel the strain of not taking time to “Be Still”… It’s where I gather my thoughts together and sift out negativity and tension. A time for reflection and observing nature always speaks to my soul. Complicated matters will look clearer. The chirping of birds, the wind blowing through trees, and  the sound of running water will restore what has been missing in our sometimes fast paced life…

    Being still is indeed a challenge in our crazy techo paced lives. It has even become more necessary yet seems to be less tolerated. I’m reminded of the fact that someone was utterly shocked when I told them that on my vacation I was going to “be still” and spend a lot of time being quiet. For them that was intolerable because vacations are something where you go and drive yourself even more nuts then come back to work and try and relax. Enjoy the quiet and stillness. We have forgotten that the God presence often will speak to us in a whisper instead of a shout. With technology we can making everything so “loud” that it will eventually make us deaf.
