Stillness In My Day...

I took this picture Saturday evening around 6:30.  The sun was beaming on just one section of the road.  This is just an old country road that we call........ "Red Bud Road."  

What I see in this picture is "Stillness."

"Be Still and Know that I am God" 
       Psalm 46:10

I know that for me, in my stillness, I am able to hear the voice of God in ways that
everyday noise does not allow...  Being still before God also allows Him to speak directly to
my soul, which is so important in order for me to allow God to direct my paths.  (Being Still is definitely something that I need to do more of.....)

In our world today, we forge ahead in such a fastness and we are always trying to figure things
out before God has given us the insight to do so....(I) find myself missing out on all the benefits by not waiting on the Lord....I sometimes think of all the Blessings that I missed out on, just because I choose to do things in MY own timing....

BUT......When I am STILL, I find it so refreshing to sense the presence of the Lord and to feel Him all around me.  I love it when I take the time to open wide the window of my soul and to allow God to lead me!

"In Him who is the source of my strength, I have strength for
                                    Philippians   4:13

Give someone a "Smile" today!
