Be Still?

A little bit about me: I'm a twenty-something who enjoys food, people and the outdoors - including my new found hobby of disc golf.

I would like to pose a question; when do you find time to be still and listen to God? In Psalm 46:10 it says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” This passage immediately calls us to be still, meaning stop all of our stressing your anxiety, your work....everything.

Which brings me back to the question, “When do you find time to be still and listen to God?” I think the process of becoming still and listening to God is increasingly difficult, especially as Americans. Americans are now known for trying to squeeze every minute out of a day in the name of productivity and progress. We are all so busy and we don’t have time to slow down, stop and listen. It is quite easy to find yourself overwhelmed with all of the meetings, social engagements and errands you have to do.

Personally, the time that I find to be still and listen to God is in the early mornings before the chaos of the day has begun and ideally if I can be in nature aka God’s creation. It is just so much quieter out in nature you can listen to the birds singing the breeze blowing through the trees and maybe even the brook bubbling. In those moments I can be still and know that God is in control.

Now tell me: When do those moments happen for you?
