The word for the Friday writing prompt is Still. says it means to remain in place or at rest.
“to stand still.”
Also it is to be free from noise or sound, silent.
“to keep still about a matter.”
Also it is to be subdued or hushed sound.
“a still small voice.”
Also it is to be free from turbulence, peaceful, calm or tranquil.
“the still air.”
Mark 4:39 there is the story of Jesus and his disciples.
The water was rough and scaring everyone and Jesus stood
and told the waves to stop.
“He woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea,
Peace! be still!
The wind ceased and there was a dead calm.”
Psalm 46:10 tells us to,
“Be still, and know that I am God!”
He has the power to create stillness over any situation.
I think He is telling us over and over,
to quiet our restless hearts and be calm.
Be still… that is a profound difficult task for us sometimes.
We often feel we must do, we must keep busy,
we must not have idle moments.
Yet Jesus said, “Be Still.”
I think I like the remaining in place definition as it goes with my last two blog posts.
Be still and know…. remain in place
with no turbulence surrounding you.
Only the quiet peaceful knowing that He is God
He alone is the one who can give us ‘quietness of soul’.
