Be Still

In Psalm 46:10, God says to “be still and know that I am God”, and then continues by saying that He will be “exalted among the nations” and “exalted in the earth”. For anyone who knows me, I struggle with the “still” part. My wife says that I was born with the “fast forward” and “off” buttons, but not “play” or “pause”. I’m working on that. Part of honoring our creator is simply to stop the rush of activity around us, especially during busy work weeks, so we can celebrate all He has created. In that spirit, I put some landscaping in our front yard with a simple stone bench. It’s now my place to sit, pause and exalt our creator in the midst of His creation. Where’s your place to pause?
