Be still and know that He IS God

It's Marvelous Monday again!  (The older I get the faster the weeks fly by) We had a great Sunday and are refueled and ready to go.  I am getting ready to plan my special meal tonight. (will share later)

However, I want to share something with you. As I journey through this Monday, God keeps bringing something to my mind over and over; Be still and know that I am God. What does that mean to me?  Well, as I keep pondering these words I realize that God is reminding me of this: He is God in the midst of my children and their choices, He is God in the midst of my finances, He is God in the midst of  my health concerns,  He is God and I am not.  As a born-again Christian I am a daughter of the King.  (a Princess)  I don't have to stress, plot, or worry about what's going on around me or even inside of me.  My job is to TRUST Him.  My job is to KNOW that He IS God and He will have the final word.  Now to me, the "be still" is the hardest part.  My mind is seems to be constantly thinking of solutions, plans, etc.  Let me make clear that God is not telling me to sit on the couch and stare.  On the contrary, He is telling me that the basis of everything I do should be complete, unwavering TRUST in the Father.  When your mind is at peace because you know WHO is really in charge, you are free to love and serve others without fear.  So, I want to encourage you: Be still (calm down) and know that He is God (over everything).

 Have a "Marvelous Monday" and let God do what only God can do!

Be still, and know that I am God!  I will be honored by every nation.  I will be honored throughout the world.  Psalms 46:10
