Sometimes We Just Need To Be Still

zealous-for-GodBeing zealous for God and for what He’s called you to do and be is important. So is being still. If you find yourself going 90-to-nothing – stop. Be still. If you’re going too fast chances are you’re not noticing some important things along the way. Be reminded that God is in control – and you don’t need to try to be. Be still and let Him show you what to do and not do so that you catch the important stuff and don’t waste your time on things that ultimately don’t need your attention.(

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

As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:5  Continue reading
