I went home this weekend to see my mama. She just had surgery and although I knew she was doing good, I needed to see her with my own eyes. And yes, she is doing good. Thank you Jesus!
I always love going home to the ‘country’ to get away from the busy life of the metroplex every once in a while. This particular trip was different in the sense that I was only home for 2 days but I had so much to do like make sure mama was ok, cook for dad, wash clothes, run some errands, find someone to make my wedding dress plus I had to make time to see all of my family.
I really felt the need to wake up early and take a stroll every morning. And it was the best decision that I made that weekend. During my morning walk, God reminded me that it was time for me to be still. I was reminded that my life is so busy and although I may work for the church that doesn’t mean that I am any more spiritual than the next person. Yes I pray and read the bible but rarely do I get alone time and allow God to just love on me.
I know life can be hectic, there is work, schedules, kids, meetings, and more meetings but sometimes, we just need to be still. And let God love on us.
“God is our protection and our strength.
He always helps in times of trouble.
So we will not be afraid even if the earth shakes, or the
mountains fall into the sea, or even if the
oceans roar and foam, or the mountains
shake at the sea….
….God says, “Be still and know that I am God.
I will be praised in all the nations;
I will be praised throughout the earth.
The Lord All-Powerful is with us;
the God of Jacob is our defender.”
