Day 22: Look Up


22 Days Ago we started on a journey of 40 Days until Easter.

It seems like years ago as so much has happened.

Time seems to have slowed down, because I have slowed down

and I am sure all of you have slowed down.

The days are longer, as the nights.

The rushing around seems to have ceased

because STILLNESS is all around us~

because we have no choice

but to embrace the

FORCED STILLNESS

that makes us so STILL

that we have to look up

to the One who has always been calling us to

BE STILL~

yet we were too busy rushing around to beat the clock

to BE STILL

because we always had tomorrow to BE STILL.

Tears are filling my eyes right now

Could this be the PEACE OF GOD that transcends all understanding

because I am so close to HIM

and that my friends transcends all understanding

because when GOD asks us to BE STILL

HE means BE STILL~

to cease,

to forsake,

to leave

to stop

to discontinue

"to put an end to a state or an activity" (Logos).

This sudden halt in our lives~

this FORCED STILLNESS~

could ruffle our feathers or

could make us run to the ONE who

"WILL cover you with HIS feathers and under HIS wings

you will find refuge" (Psalm 91:4).

Where do you run for refuge? Who do you run to for refuge?

Is it to the ONE who utters the simple words of

BE STILL

just so that we

WILL KNOW

that GOD IS GOD

in the midst of this ever changing world.

THE GOD who took the time to create each one of us in our mother's womb.

THE GOD who "for so loved" (John 3:16) us way beyond any human love

that HE gave up HIS SON because HE doesn't want to see any of HIS little chicks

to perish

to cease

to leave

to forsake

to stop

"to put an end to a state or an activity"

BUT to HAVE ETERNAL LIFE

that is an

EVERLASTING LIFE

that goes way beyond today

and tomorrow and the day after that.

AN ETERNAL LIFE that is a LIFE of

Chosen STILLNESS to remain with the ONE

who is asking us to

"BE STILL & KNOW

that

I AM GOD" (Psalm 46:10).

To BE STILL & KNOW

are just not words but are an action

to cease,

to forsake,

to leave

to stop

to discontinue

"to put an end to a state or an activity"

that lead us into the arms of the ONE who is calling

you & I & everyone else

to BE STILL

so that life as we know it will be oh so much better

because HE is calling us to

"LOOK UP MY CHILD" (listen to the song below)
