Be here. Now. Present in this moment.
Stop doing. Thinking. Planning. Scheming. Fretting
about yesterday or tomorrow.
Live in the gift that is today.
Be still and know.
A greater knowing than a summation of facts and ideas.
A knowing that needs no proof.
A knowing that holds on in spite of doubt.
A knowing that engages all your being –heart, soul, mind and strength.
Be still and know that I am.
For all that I am not, He is.
Is that not enough?
Be still and know that I am God.
What more do I need?
“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
