Here I am again… | Kimi Miller

S~ Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world. Psalm 46:10 (NLT)

O~ Be still. God’s will will prevail. All the world will know that He alone is God – even if they don’t see it yet, there will be a day when every knee will bow; every tongue will acknowledge God (Rom. 14:11). Why wait? Be still, and see the glory of the Lord in every moment of every day.

A~ I wonder if learning to be still will always be one of my greatest struggles? I find myself in this place again where I’ve done all the things on my list, met with all the people, and finished all the chores, but instead of feeling accomplished, I just feel relieved that it’s all done. Like I’ve created this small window where I can breathe and be still – or maybe it’s more like coming up for air before diving back down into the depths of distraction. I know You are still teaching me – and I’m so grateful that You haven’t given up on my yet! While part of me wants to beat myself up for finding myself here again, another part of me can see the progress we are making. Just like the other things on my to-do list, I want to learn the lesson and move on. But there is more to it than that. I struggle with a “this or that” mentality – rationalizing if I can pick between the two, make the choice, I can move on to the next thing. But You are teaching me the beauty of “and.” It doesn’t have to be this or that, sometimes it can be this and that. But I can only see it when I’m still enough to see You in it, in both.

P~ I need Your help, Jesus. I feel lost most of the time. Show me the beauty of the AND. I love You.
