When your Dad calls and says, “Can you pray for me? I am having pain in my knee and back, and my good eye is giving me problems……just pray, please.”
When there is yet another shake up at work and you wonder if this is the time……time to move back home.
Be still and know…..
When people have haven’t been a part of chaos for two years decide they want to make trouble?
Be still know and know that I am God….
When sore throats just don’t go away and you have a fever blister the size of Texas? (Poor Elaine)
Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations…..
When a troubled son won’t talk…..
Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations…..I will be exalted in the earth.
And this, always this:
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
All selections from Psalm 46

Yes. Oh my, yes!
You know, I think that everything is always hanging by a thread. They seem firm sometimes but, as you demonstrated in your examples, they aren’t. This psalm, this heart-cry, is for every day.
Visiting from Still Saturday
JoAnne, yes you’re right, we are just somehow under the assumption that it’s not when things are going well. Thank you so much for your comment, our hearts cry and He listens 🙂
Thank you Lisa…..So much. Lori
As the sea is powerful, so, too, are your words. Few words that say so very much. Glad I cam by, ~ linda
Linda…..Yes, few words can do so much, especially when those few words are His! Thank you…..Blessings to you. Lori

Thank you Rachel. This morning I saw Sandra’s post and I wasn’t even thinking of posting anything, but the words kind of wrote themselves! I think I may make this a tradition. Blessings, Lori
