Cease Striving

Peace, Striving

Cease striving and know that I am God.”

I sat down to write a blog post and discovered that I had nothing to say! My mind and body were so overwhelmed with how busy I was that I couldn’t think, let alone come up with some profound word to share with you.

I found myself wondering where I could find the off switch. Could I just flip a switch and have some down time? Nope! No. Off. Switch.

Maybe you can relate. Life can be so full of activities that we don’t take time to be still. I find that in those times I need to remind myself that it is a good thing to stop each day and spend time with Jesus. It is in this down time that it is possible to reorder the inner man.

Psalm 46:10a says, “Cease striving and know that I am God.”

To cease striving requires that we slow down and stop the busyness even if just for a few minutes. That can be a tough thing to do at times.  There have been times when I overslept and rolled out of bed with a frenzy that filled my entire day.  I did not take the time to start my day out the right way and the ripple effect was profound.

So today I want to encourage you to slow down and spend some time focused on what is really important. Time spent reading the Bible and praying. Commit your day to the Lord for His purposes and He will direct your path.

Cease striving and know that I am God.”

May the peace of God be manifest in your life!
