a time to catch up on homework
a time to study
or just a time do nothing~
a time to be still.
What if every day you had a study hall,
when you just stopped
and did nothing
and said nothing
and watched nothing.
What would you think about
when you had nothing that you had to think about?
I am sure you are thinking about "that" now.
What is on your mind
What is on your heart~
beyond the to do list for the day?
In the quiet stillness
just you, yourself
and your mind and your heart
and I almost forgot~
because He is with you right this second,
being still with you
just wanting to listen
to what is on your heart~
whatever you are thinking about
when you have nothing else to think about.
It could be thanksgiving for all that you have and all that He has done for you.
It could be grief over something that was and is no longer going to be.
It could be anxiety and fear about something that you have to face.
It could be pure Peace, Hope, Love, and Joy
because you are
God is God
and that He is sitting with you now
that transcends all understanding...
“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does.
Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” John 14:27
that is a better hope that whatever else you may be hoping for...
Let all that I am wait quietly before God for my hope is in Him. Psalm 62:5
that fills a broken heart...
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
that is the wind beneath your wings...
When anxiety was great within me, Your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19
Well, I gotta go
with the One who is sitting with me
with the One who knows me
with the One whose
what I am thinking about
when I have nothing else that I have to think about
take over my mind
take over my heart.

Be still and know
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:5-8
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
