Am I the only person who struggles with being still? Somehow, I don’t think so.
I have so much difficulty with doing nothing. By nature, I am a very self disciplined, driven individual. The concept of taking time for myself does not come naturally for me.
Sometimes, I can do a lazy Saturday morning. I use this time to write and move at my own pace. I enjoy those mornings, but I still measure them by what I accomplish during that time.
Moments of doing nothing? Of being completely still? Those moments are so important for me to recharge and catch my breath. I don’t allow for them often enough in my life. Usually, it is when I feel myself becoming unraveled that I realize that I really need to rest.
Being still is a gift we give ourselves. Being still before God, undistracted in His presence…a gift we can give Him.
Today, rest in the grace of giving yourself permission to rest. We all need to take moments to pause and reflect.
How can you make this time? Will you?
