Yesterday, a friend stopped me to ask how I was. She will never know how much it meant to me that she stopped her day to ask. She’d posted something on her Facebook page that we’d discussed earlier that week. It really helped me put things in perspective. It was about the verse; “Be still and know that I am God” and how the original root of “Be Still” doesn’t actually mean be quiet, but let go! Which we both agreed is hard for us.

“Letting Go” means a lot of things to me. My control over everything out of control. My prayer requests, and my anger. Believe it or not I am a grudge holder. I know, I know, doesn’t seem possible right? THAT my friends is a rhetorical question. I mean, I am being sarcastic but I really do hold on to almost everything! And it’s exhausting. That is why letting go would be such a relief! I haven’t claimed any real New Year resolutions for 2019 yet. But I do believe that REALLY “letting go” would be a good start for me. To let go of any plans I may have, and to really believe that God’s GOT this! And that He’s working things out according to HIS will! Which sometimes is hard to understand at the time.

My son sent me this verse this morning….

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

First off, to have my son sending me Bible Verses IS a miracle in its self. But TODAY especially I needed this one! I am in kind of a Spiritual Warfare right now. And I need the Armor of something much more powerful than me. Funny, I asked God to let me know He heard me. He is so faithful if we stop to really listen and  yes…. let go!

 

When I’m On My Knees

 

In the darkest corner, or on the raging sea

when everything looks bleak,

I find You

when I’m on my knees.

No matter where I am, I know where You will be

and that I can always find You

when I’m on my knees

I don’t mind all the lessons that forever are reminding me

that I mostly find the answers

when I’m on my knees.

And when the dark has lifted and You’ve answered all my pleas

may I always remember

to thank You when I’m on my knees!

  1. Love this! I just wrote a blog myself the other day called “Be Still”. It is a story about my first grade teacher.. but essentially also about the fact that I have to make myself “be still” because it is such an unnatural state for me. I get caught up in my business. I let time pass and realize I haven’t spent anytime in the presence of the Lord. It is difficult to be still so we can listen but it is the only time I “hear” Him. Loved your post! ❤

    1. Thank you! I loved your post. It makes you realize how many missed opportunities we have as adults as we look back on our own childhoods and remember with such vivid clarity some of those moments & even what we were feeling & doing! (Swinging your legs in your own little chair!) And how we need to be more aware of how we handle the children in our own lives now.
      Sooo funny you should mention it. Because my friend who I had been talking to said how that
      Being still for her has always been so hard (as for me! I could so relate to your getting in trouble as a child for that!) But now as an adult even more so letting go! That whole verse asks a lot of people like us! Lol. Thank you for sharing & reading!!!!❤️

  2. “Letting go of all the crap in our lives, isnt just to let go of something on the outside, but to let go of the build up of crap within us over time, so we can move forward along our paths peacefully with great happiness”
