5 thoughts on “Be Still…

  1. As I visually took my seat upon our scriptural bench I tried to conjure up angry against Mr Trump among others. I saw a trickle of water, “be angry but sin not.” As I focused my Spiritual eyes on the ‘sin not’ with a decision to make the fruit of the spirit ‘self-control’ my ears began to hear the river water flowing…

    Luke 12: 47 ”That servant who knows his master’s will but does not get ready or follow his instructions will be beaten with many blows. 48) But the one who unknowingly does things worthy of punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from him who has been entrusted with much, even more will be demanded. 49) I have come to ignite a fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!…”

    1. ‘From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from him who has been entrusted with much, even more will be demanded.”

      I’m taking the above words from above quote of Luke 12 vs. 48b…my many mini thoughts seem to scan what I have ownership of in both the physical world as well as nature and spiritual. My Living Room, my animals, my kindness connected to other taste of the fullness of our fruit tree found in Galatians 5;22 which includes love, peace and joy?

      My morning calculation gives me first a thankful, grateful heart. A pill of praise to The One who gave to me generously leading me back to my mini thoughts. Yes, this has unearthed some issues buried deep of resentment about what I considered my time when the giver of time demanded some of it for things that irritate my emotions. I am thankful for the light of truth!

  2. Thanks Sara on the encouragement to ‘Be Still’ and from your sharing Luke 12. Lots to think on regarding accountability, etc.
    It also made me think of and read James 4:17.

  3. The chitter-chatter of the ”faithful” drowns out the Voice of Stillness, the Holy Spirit.
    I have to tell my mind, “Peace, be still” When finally it ”calms down” then His Voice of peace starts to infiltrate my mind, drawing it back into the real Essence of Peace…..His Still Small Voice.
    This article surely is timely…..for the time of self-control giving over to the Holy Spirit’s control, is Here and Now.
    Thank you Sara.
