just "be"

I do not know how to just "be". It is so hard for me. If I choose to sit and be silent, my mind races and I can't silence it. I feel like if I am not doing something, I am wasting time. It is my desire to learn to sit, be still, and just be. To just be, and for it to be ok. I don't have to have these high expectations of myself...I don't have to have it all figured out right now.

All morning, Psalm 46:10 has been in my head. I blogged about it over a year ago. As I have meditated on this verse this morning, I have come to a new revelation (which is what I absolutley love about the Bible and God, I can read the same verse a thousand times and get something different from it).

"Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted among the earth"

God is reminding me of his supremacy. Sometimes, often, I forget what a BIG God I serve. He is bigger than any situation or circumstance. In this verse, every fear is stilled, every anxiety quieted. God is telling me that I can relax. He is God. He is victorious. He is supreme among all the nations and supreme over all the earth.

There may be a problem or struggle in my life that is too big for a human to handle, but it is never too big for God.
