Be still

I have always (well, as long as a remember) been a person who does not expect good things to happen or then they do, not to get excited because I am to busy thinking, planning, and waiting for the other shoe to drop. I realized today the other shoe so to speak is always going to fall because time does not stand still, and life is full of seasons, ups and downs, highs and lows, and mountains and valleys as life is all about seasons. Like my favorite versus Ecc 3:1-8.

1To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
4 A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
8 A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

Regardless, of the season high or low, God is going to be with me, and I pray that I have the courage to follow the path God has for me. I am sure I will stumble, fall, and even detour a long the path but God’s grace will see me through. So, now, when life gets tough, the unexpected happens, things are not going as plan or deviate from the many backup plans, I have, I have to take a breath and recited, Psalms 46:10a.

Be still, and know that I am God.

How incredibly powerful are those few simple words. No matter what is going on in life, the world, or even the universe, God is still God and still in control.

    I find tremendous comfort knowing that G-d is always there.
