“Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
“Be still.” To be still means to stop; to clear the mind; to let the deep pain rise up unrestricted; to remove all that has suppressed it for years. To be still is to let the emotion go; to be vulnerable. Being still is to cease my striving; to let go of my stubborn self; to put down my guard. To be still is to know God can heal. To be still is to let God permeate my inner being.
To be still is to let me know God, to know he is the great I Am. To know God is to know his loving grace, to know his peace; to know he is ever present; to know his steadfast love; to know he is everlasting. To be still and feel my brokenness is to know God can make me whole. In the stillness, in the quiet of my mind, I can feel his presence; I can feel his gentle touch. He places his arm around me and holds me tight, telling me, “All is well.”
