Just be still

As of lately my brain is scattered. Like, thought process is all over the place.

I’m trying to write. I’m trying to study. I’m trying to research, and I can’t for the life of me focus. In the midst of the chaos, I can hear God whispering, “Chill out, girl. Be still.”

That’s hard y’all.

It’s hard to sit still – to feel still – when the pace of this world is flying by you ninety to nothing. It’s hard to stop your brain when you have a checklist of things you want to do a mile and half long.

It’s hard to chill when you’re excited or nervous or impatient – or just a woman period in this play by play Facebooking, Instagramming world.

If we truly want to slow our roll we’ve got to:

Say no to our thoughts

Say no to our phone

Say no to our schedule

And we’ve got to do all those things on purpose.

Find a quiet place.

Get still.

Be still.

“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.” Psalm 62:5-6
