veganpecan Returned to @yogatothepeople today. So glad I did. What an AMAZING class...full of sweat, tears, and power. This was today's reading:
Autobiography in Five Chapters
by Portia Nelson

I
I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk I fall in. I am lost... I am hopeless. It isn't my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.
II
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don't see it. I fall in again. I can't believe I'm in the same place. But it isn't my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.
III
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in...it's a habit
My eyes are open; I know where I am;
It is my fault. I get out immediately.
IV
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
V
I walk down another street.

tarrakruz I was 19, stressed, crazed & HAD to talk to someone. After a long tearful rant my friend on the other line paused & simply said…”I think God just wants you to be still right now and know that He is God.” I was deflated. How could He throw a bible verse at me in a time when I CLEARLY needed action, answers, help, fast! The need to defend my anxieties was gnawing at me, but so was a faint feeling he was right. Truthfully I knew I was too scared to let go. I didn’t know how. Be still & know Him...and not know the answers? How could I just do nothing.
12 years later, oh how my flesh still rages, tears frequently fall & frantic sobbing calls are made, but after all these years of walking with Him I can honestly say, NOTHING else matters apart from being, deeply present and humbly still before the presence of our Father the creator.
Stillness is knowing that HE is writing my story, we can rest in HIM, because HE is in control. He’s proved it over & over. In every step, every day, every struggle, every hurt & every hurry He is revealing his glory, his plan, his love & his purpose.
Oh that we would be still friends. Breath deep in those lungs that He designed. Be present with the One who made us. Rest easy as we see the beautiful story He is writing with this life.
Your purpose is His plan.

thescribesheart I remember this day. The beginning was shaped by tears that I wished would stop. The end was met by joy and strength and the belief that all was well. I was confident that life was going to bloom in her once again. That she was going to wake up with rejoicing in her eyes and a smile dancing on her lips. I was ready to hear of her travels, of where she had been as we waited by her bedside. I was ready for another "I love you," another "I'm so proud of you," but those words became memories when the next day marched valiantly into position. To her, we said goodbye in silence and the sound of tears erased the hope of one more chance. She was gone. What has bloomed in her place is the understanding that God makes no mistakes. He knows what's best, even when we can't comprehend His ways. He is the sovereign Lord. He knows what He is doing, and to trust Him with everything is our rest. He is still God, a gracious and loving God. A gracious and loving God.

Psalm 46
God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him.
We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake,
Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains.
God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
2d

livingrevelations My Be Still Wallpaper is finally done!! Download it by subscribing to my blog http://bit.ly/1OmjxQy Link in bio!
Being still means not forcing God to tell you everything, but trusting him in everything. Being still means letting go and letting God fight your battles. It means trusting that God's got this, and all you need to do is trust in him.

When we truly know who our Lord is, we can have the peace to be still and let God take over. It's only in our stillness when we can see God's hand working in our lives. When we understand the kind of loving and almighty God we have who watches over us, we are able to be still no matter what storm we face.

I hope that this wallpaper would be more than just a wallpaper, but one that reminds you what it truly means to be still. Whatever frustrations you may face each day, may this wallpaper remind you of who your God is and that you only need to be still.

Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the Earth."
