Be Still.

After singing praise, Pastor Glenn's wife began Sunday's church service by reading Psalm 46: 10.

While I have heard this verse many times in my life, it really hit home for the first time on Sunday.

In this verse, "Be still" doesn't literally mean to "Be Still." It means rapha which translates to "to be weak, to let go, to release."

Let go, release yourself in God. 

Wow. If that wasn't enough to chill your bones, when the verse was first written in Hebrew, the emphasis was on the word "know" to show that you have no doubt in the Lord.

Release yourself and KNOW that God is in control. 

I've been so caught up in the hurt and uncertainty of life lately. I can't find answers and have been hurting even more because of it. Sunday's service reminded me that God's timing is perfect and that he has a bigger plan for all of us. He wants me right here, right now for some reason I may not get right now. I am tired and I am lost, but God has a plan. 

Have you ever received a message at the perfect time? What was the message? 


  1. This is so perfect for my life right now. I've been having intense bouts of anxiety about uncertainty in my life too. That verse has always been one of my favorites. It's so encouraging!

  2. My favorite thing lately has been the fact that the words "do not be afraid" are written in the bible 365 times. A daily reminder from God to live everyday in a fearless way. (thanks pinterest for the fact) But it really does calm me down when I get overly worked up about something.

  3. This is so perfect for me to hear right now. I'm such a type-A person, it's hard for me to not have serious anxiety when things don't go my way! I'll say a little prayer for you--hope all is well, sweet girl!
