“Be still, and know that I am God!“– Psalm 46:10
One of the most difficult admonitions in the Bible for me is the first two words of the verse from Psalms: Be still.
Yes, I know how beneficial it is to quiet my mind, to sit, immobile and listen. To give the narrator of my life a rest and allow my empty cup to be filled with peace and light.
This is a lesson I must learn over and over again each day. It seems as though I am consumed with busyness. I am the bumblebee, trundling endlessly from one flower to the next. But, oh when I am still…
I can feel my blood pressure ticking downward, my patience quota increases, my good humor comes alive, and I can finally and completely exhale.
Let me, I think, take my cue from the flower, rather than the bumblebee. The flower waits, open, silent, immobile.
