Being Still by Monica Sagastume
Being still is easier said than done.
Being so new in my relationship with Jesus, I still have challenges to overcome, and learned patterns that I have to break and chains that will be loosed. I'm referring to the “chains” that most worship songs talk about.
Pleasing humans and striving to avoid confrontations, was my way of living for a long time. I’m not perfect and it still happens. The difference now is that Jesus helped me realize who is in control of my life.
Through daily prayer and obedience, HE taught me who was in control of every step I take. He is in control of all the relationships in my life. HE is the one who gives me all the unconditional love and support I need.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalms 46:10. So as I continue my journey with Jesus and make mistakes, I'm reminded that the mistakes I made before brought me to the love of Jesus.
The mistakes brought me to the acknowledgment of the ONLY PROVIDER who deserves our praise, the only being who deserves to be pleased. Sometimes, gentle confrontations build a relationship God needs wants to grow in our lives, but gentle confrontations can also break the relationships that no longer serve HIS purpose for us.
What "chains" are you struggling with today? Be still and try not to rush. Know that HE is God. Let’s praise the Lord through all of our trials, all of our storms and HE WILL FILL OUR HEARTS. Let's be still and know that HE is God.
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4
God is good and HE will CONTINUE to provide for me and for you all that we need as we trust and know that HE IS GOD!
On the day I wrote this, God allowed me to see this view of stillness.
Be still and know that He is God!
