Over the past couple of weeks in my weekly depression support group, we have been talking about being still. Our leader took the scripture Psalm 46:10 and gave us a new perspective.

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

He sent His son to die for our sins, only God is strong enough to make that sacrifice.

"Be still and know that I am."

God is mighty and all powerful. He created the heavens and the earth and knew us in the womb.

"Be still and know."

Slow down and listen. Listen to the things around you that only our mighty Father could bless you with…happiness, children, family, trials, tribulations.

"Be still."

We don't have to run from one thing to the next. Stop and be still for a moment. Listen for His voice.


We often are too scared to stop running and just be. Are you running from something or someone? Just be and let God intervene.
