The stillness works!

In the middle of what should have been a crazy stressful week, somehow I found some time for a breath and some stillness. I had to preach the sermon, oversee a carwash and dinner on the grounds, all put on by teens, and during all of his I keep (most) of my calm. I give all of the glory to God for what he did Sunday and am amazed that I was able to be a part of it. I love the fact that God uses us. He is more than able to make things happen all on His own but He still chooses to use us to bring glory to Him. And I pray that is exactly what happened. But in all of this, I still set time aside to rest, pray and be still. And I really think that is what God used to get me through it all. So my message to you is: in the mist of the busy chaos, take a break to recognize God, to talk to Him, listen to Him and just be still. God is alive and well and absolutely loves spending time with you. So find a spot, set a time and just be still. It works, believe me.

Psalm 46:10 Be still , and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
This is an imperative statement, not a request or suggestion. I believe we will be blessed not only for the stillness but also for being obedient.
I am so glad you are busy in God's work and enjoying the ministry. There is no way you could keep up the pace without coming aside and spending time alone with Him for His empowerment on your life.
We love you and pray for you.
