What am I excited about?


(I love comments!) "Be still and know that I am God." (Ps. 46:10 NIV)
In our fast paced society, this is difficult. "Be still!"  I am not good at being still, yet in the quiet God speaks to our heart.  Through the years, I have gotten better at doing this. One of my favorite ways to hear God speak to my Spirit is getting quiet and sitting in a verse. 

For example:
"For I know the plans that I have for you- declares the Lord.." (Jer. 29:11) God whispers this one often when I am thinking - what is next, how is this going to work, what does the future look like? In the quiet thinking about this verse, God told me. "I already know the plan for you (your family)."  If God knows the plan and His heart is good, then I can rest in His plan. Owning this verse has brought me great peace.

Here is one way to get still:

1. Read a Bible verse or story that you like
2. Set your watch/phone for 2 minutes
3. For these two minutes think about the verse or story you picked and how it applies to your life
4. Ask God to show you something about this verse/story
5. Write it down

(When I was starting this practice, a wise mentor told me that God never contradicts Himself or His Word.)

God, I invite You into my day, my thoughts, my time with You. Keep negativity and distraction away. In Jesus name
