Be Still

I think that the most difficult part of faith is what is referred to in Christian-speak as “waiting on God”. You see, God doesn’t work a spiritual drive through break-through window and he’s not a working from your wish list Santa-God. So much of faith requires a somewhat supernatural spiritual patience while waiting on Him to fulfill His Romans 8:28 promise … that all things will work to the good of those who know and love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.

A popular question among Christians is “what’s your life verse?” Mine is … “[B]e still, and know that I am God …” (Psalms 46:10). This difficult time provides us with an opportunity to ‘be still’ and wait on Him. It should be clear to all of us that we, our accomplishments, good fortune or lack of good fortune, are but a vapor vulnerable to the whim and emotionally driven winds of artificial market forces.

I’ve given a lot of thought to ‘what to do’ during this frighteningly surreal period and have decided to fall back on my ‘life verse’ and purpose to ‘be still’ and prayerfully ‘wait on God’. As my mother says … ‘work like it depends on you, pray like it depends upon God … because it does.”

I hope you’ll join me.
