Stillness. It’s something I am learning again and again in the hurry of life. God says, “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10 NKJV). This has become one of my favorite verses over the last thirty years. I return to it, especially when I am overwhelmed difficulties and challenges. I hear God whispering it to me, encouraging me to stop everything and run to Him to gaze on His ways and character. When I am still, and I focus on the Lord, I discover His greatness, and my troubles seem to shrink in comparison.
Sometimes you just need to look away from it all and fix your gaze on God and God alone. I caught this bird at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach looking off into the distance of the ocean, the waves, and horizon. What a lesson from God’s creation to be still and know that He is God. The fact that God IS and that He loves us and that He helps us, answers our prayers, and is the God of deliverances answers so many seemingly impossible situations. Take courage and find hope in God today dear friend. He is with you and loves you.

So be encouraged with the majesty, glory, greatness, and power of God. He really is more than enough for everything you will experience in life. Be still and know that He is God. God bless you dear friend as you continue on in this great adventure of knowing Him.
Blessings and Grace to you,
