If I would only stop and take the time to really slow down, still my soul, and re-center on the Lord, it makes everything else fall into place. Somehow, I forget this, and think the faster I go, the more I can accomplish in my own power. The truth is, if I really remembered who God is, I would take the time and be still. It works both ways—if I will be still, I will know that He is God, and if I know He is God, He will still me.
I think of a body of water with its surface tossing from the wind, and when it becomes still, it is able to reflect the light of the sun. When we let ourselves be still, we are able to reflect the light of Jesus.
