This Tuesday I am taking a minute to 'Be still and know that (He) is God.' Psalm 46:10
In my every day life I usually end up relying on my own abilities and resources to make my day turn out the way I planned for it to. If something comes up that was unexpected I don't take a step back and think, "What is God trying to say to me?" I immediately go into, "I can fix it by myself" mode. I am a woman on a mission and NO ONE can stand in my way!
Take yesterday for example. I went to work at the crack of dawn as usual. Before I left home I posted yesterday's blog. No sooner did I get to work that my face and neck started to itch, burn, and swell. So what did I do? First, I went to CVS (after driving all over town because nothing was open) and got Benadryl (took 2 of them) and hydrocortisone cream. I intended to wait it out and call the doctor's office when it opened. But my manager had different plans...she sent me to the ER. That opened a whole new can of worms...waiting...waiting...and more waiting. And then to top it off they weren't gonna let me out of the place until I paid my $100 co-pay. She even asked me, "What about the wage assignment?" You've gotta be kidding me.
So anyway, the point to of the story above was that not once did I stop (be still) and know (realize) that He is God (and in control of the situation). My mother texted me and reminded me of what I had just posted not 2 hours earlier. Oh Lord, I need all the help that You can give me to 'Be still and know that (YOU) are God.'
