“Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.”
Psalm 46:10 MSG
The swirling moments that disrupt your days can grey the skies. Pressure surging you forward to be more, do more, have more. It never works out that way; the more it simmers the more you need to be, do and have. It’s a relentless coercion. A vicious compression of your soul.
Some call it “keeping up with the Jones’”. While others, immersed in the news and headlines call it being “informed”. Some push and strive to “achieve the dream”. Either way, it is a whirlwind. Whipping you to and fro. Battle torn. Empty.
Just pause. Be still. Notice. There are fountains of peace-filled water flowing around you. There are songbirds of joy and kisses of warm sunlit love. The battle may rage, but not you. You stand firm on the solid rock of your High God, resting in His steady, continuous grace.
Know that even the winds and the waves answer to Him, Be still and know He is God.

~ Hey friends!! I have missed you all, so very much. This summer was a very focused season of specific writing… and I am ready to stretch out a bit and rest in the wide open spaces of creativity. My soul longs to dance among the words and punctuation on a page. So guess what? I’ll be blogging more here starting next week! Woo Hooo! (Don’t worry book fans, I am still diligently working with Stand With Hannah Joy to produce a beautiful Narrative Non-fiction about faith in the hard places. ~grin).
