Be still is a reminder that I get a lot. That's probably because I need to hear it a lot. When things get stressful, my first instinct is to try to do things to help with the situation that's causing the stress. And there are time when I need to keep doing my part in the situation and let God do His part, but there are also times when what I need to do most is to be still and listen. And I'm learning that to being still isn't only something I need to do when I'm stressed - it's just more urgent then. But though life feels fairly calm at the moment, I was reminded again this week of the importance of listening.
So, that is my goal this week - to be still and really listen during my time with God.
