Confession: I have a really hard time being still.
This past week I was at the beach with friends and for the life of me, I could not lay still in the sun. I’d rather be walking, swimming, throwing frisbee or something…but to sit STILL, not moving and getting more freckles, unfortunately, is a bit hard for me to do.
I have also come to realize that I struggle a bit being still before the Lord and “Being” in His Word.
Psalm 46:11 says, “Be still and know that I am God.”
James 1:22 says, “Be doers of the Word and not hearers only…”
How can I Be a doer of God’s Word if I’m not taking time to be still and know that He is God through His Word?
I am learning if I can’t BE still before the Lord and be a woman of His Word, there will be an even bigger struggle as I seek to BE a doer of His Word and teach these truths to my son. I am daily striving hard to make time to BE still and BE in His Word, in order that I might BE a doer of His Word. As a doer of his word, I must learn to put into practice all that God tells me to be. This is not important only for me, but as I learn to be in His Word and do what He has called me to do, I’ll be much more equipped to teach and train the Next Generation.

We have an obligation to truly take time to “BE Still and Know that He is God” in order to help our children learn to “Be Still and Know that He is God.”
In studying the many things God’s Word tells us about “Being,” I’ve realized that these are practical and beautiful ways I can strive to model and train my son in order for him to begin being a “doer of God’s Word and not just a hearer only.” (James 1:22)
Below are just a few reminders from God’s Word on what He has called us to BE. Continue reading →
