Things to Be

“Let’s get to work, Lord”, I said aloud. “We have things to do today.”

But instantly, this thought came to my mind. “Brenda, we have things to be, today.”

The table lay awash in fabric. I intended my day to be one of ‘cut and sew’ for the little people in my life. Since it is one of my favorite things to do, I have no qualms about putting other jobs aside to create.

So instead of sewing, I gathered up my Bible, journal and pen. Then I moved to my favorite chair to read, write and meditate on God.

For the first time in several days, I took time to carefully, calmly, and seriously concentrate my mind on Him.  I intentionally quieted my mind and rested it wholly on Him.  Sometime later, I rose from my seat, refreshed, relaxed and renewed.

Psalm 46:10 – Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth (AMP).

But first, He must be exalted in His people.

Prayer: Lord, forgive us for thinking we can do so much, so much faster, without Your input into our lives. Amen.
