Spirit {Be Still}

By joselle - March 17, 2016

Be still. 
Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Spirit
This line from the verse has been an anchor for me whenever I fee like I am missing out on the world and its experiences. Spending days and months cooped up in an apartment can really bring on the itch to go out there and just do SOMETHING! Of course, I'm thankful for the experiences that came into my life, the places I've discovered, food and flavors tasted, memories made, lessons learned and being learned, and new relationships forged. 

However, I think it is normal for us  to feel like we not doing or experiencing enough, that  the world is turning fine without us in the areas that matter. And that thought, when it comes, gnaws at my insides like a worm that wants to get out.  

This line pulls me back to trust and patient waiting, reminds me that I may feel like I'm not getting anywhere, He is at work, and diligently, at that. It takes skill, this art of patient and active waiting, but to hear that voice that says,  "Joselle, be still," there is nothing like it, frankly. 

But, being still is not the easiest thing to do! 

Far from it! It is hard, because everyday is a new struggle of letting go and trusting, which is the reason why  I felt like I needed to put this line on paper, to remind me to be still when it is easier to fret, worry, move, or cry because I'm not where I want to be.

It  brings a certain kind of peace, this knowing that your timeline is not His timeline and that His is definitely a better version, one that brings complete joy.

John 15:9-10 
9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

Knowing that I can be relieved of that burden, and just trust because that His plan is infinitely much better than mine, how amazing is that?!?!
