Being still…

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret -Psalm 37:7

When we get worn-out doing God’s work, we need to remember whose work it is. God and the world got along quite well before we came along. He never lays on anyone burdens greater than they can bear; it is we who assume more than God expects.

Heavenly Father, I need to heed the call to stillness and learn to say no. When the strong wing blows, grant me a quiet island where I can revel in the Holy Spirit’s constant presence.Through Christ I pray. Amen.
