One of my favorite scriptures...
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall they shall walk and not faint!

For me being still is calming my mind and body, focusing only on Him. In those quiet moments, God can and has uplifted, encouraged, and restored me. Being still and letting God work, has taught me we often place periods where God has simply placed a comma.

Beautiful things happen when we be still. Faith is restored, spiritual weight is lifted, misunderstanding are resolved. Our topics in this forum could be centered around "Praise and Worship!" if only we be still.
Blessings!

Psalms 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.

True event taken from my journal . June 14th: God taught me a lesson about
"HOLDING ONTO HIM IN THE DIFFICULT TIMES"

As I sat quietly in my van enjoying my time alone with the Lord, I suddenly discovered a group of butterflies huddled together in a small spot maybe 10 feet away. The 11 I counted were different in size and colors and very focused on something invisible to my eyes.



I left my van and approached them ever so slowly. To my amazement, they did not fly away. I knelt right over the top of them to study their brilliant colors and the symmetry of each wing. The yellow monarchsí wings were trimmed in black with 4 red dots and three blue ones. Among these beautiful little creatures were 2 middle-sized black butterflies, two red ones, and another black one with wings edged in blue. After a few moments of actually reaching down and petting them, I returned to observe them from my vehicle. When joggers ran by, they still did not move. However, when a large machine came by sweeping the debris off the road and onto them, ........all but one butterfly flew away.


There was this one little, wiry-legged butterfly just tightening its grip and holding onto the pavement for dear life. Itís little body swayed furiously against the disturbance caused by the machine, yet it did not leave.

God is so good and so faithful. He had just reminded me during the stressful times that He would always be there and for me to hold on in faith.

This message is for all of us. Will you share a special moment when you were still before the Lord and He taught you a lesson?
