The Art of Being Still

My greatest concern as you read this post is that it will end up adding to the problem. Yet, I’m willing to risk it in the hope that this truth might take hold in you and I.

We are a restless people. Hustling, talking, scanning, surfing, watching, talking, working….working our way into a lather and we do it all with not much to show for it. While I’m a big proponent of living a lifestyle of praying without ceasing, my biggest flaw in my prayer life is my inability to be still….to hit the mute button on life.

The Art of Being Still

There’s a reason that Jesus would go off alone to pray. Solitude is a necessity if we’re to have communion with God that’s without distraction.

To get there we’re going to have to get intentional: shut the door, turn the electronic thing that has our attention off, go on a walk….whatever it takes.

Here’s the verse I want us to fall into today:

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will
be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10

Be still. Know and remember He is God. Take some time to pray without speaking. Just be still and rest in the truth of who God is.

I’m resting with you.

  1. I’ll immediately grasp your rss feed as I can’t in finding your email subscription hyperlink or newsletter service. Do you have any? Please let me understand in order that I may just subscribe. Thanks.

  2. I have observed that sensible real estate agents almost everywhere are getting set to FSBO Advertising. They are seeing that it’s more than simply placing a poster in the front property. It’s really concerning building associations with these sellers who someday will become purchasers. So, after you give your time and efforts to serving these vendors go it alone — the “Law regarding Reciprocity” kicks in. Good blog post.

  3. I have learned some new things from your blog post. One other thing to I have noticed is that usually, FSBO sellers will certainly reject anyone. Remember, they might prefer never to use your services. But if an individual maintain a gradual, professional relationship, offering help and being in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a conversation. From there, a house listing follows. Thank you

  4. One thing I have actually noticed is there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the lenders intentions when talking about property foreclosures. One fable in particular is the fact that the bank wishes to have your house. The lender wants your hard earned dollars, not your home. They want the funds they gave you along with interest. Steering clear of the bank will simply draw a new foreclosed summary. Thanks for your publication.

  5. Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is that often individual states have their very own laws of which affect householders, which makes it extremely tough for the our elected representatives to come up with the latest set of rules concerning foreclosure on homeowners. The problem is that a state offers own legislation which may have interaction in an adverse manner with regards to foreclosure guidelines.
