Being still and knowing He is God.

Being still

Somewhere out there is a millionaire in the making. There is someone with handle on a cure for cancer. There is a job which a homeless might be praying for.

And yet, our drive to get to where we need to be, seems discouraging, as a turn in a labyrinth would draw the strength from us, over and over. We aren't lost, were are fatigued. We have travelled the road less travelled and we have got on the beaten path. Favor is with us, blessing as well. We are a moment away from eternity and like a seal we hold our cares like a ball atop its nose. World meets us. And the strain to be pure in a whitewashed dirty and cold black world... We find anguish, rage, humility warring with our pride... We find the faithful few and far. This Jesus taught us well. And when He wasn't preaching, healing, walking amidst lepers and tax collectors and sinners, or embracing the twelve...

He was quiet and still before the Father.


An original work of art by David Lopez

David Lopez An original poem: Being...

A principle rarely initiated is just being.

Just be.

Simply be still,

closing your eyes,

meditative on scripture or

praying in the Spirit,

quieting your mind.


Until He speaks...

Or until He doesn't.

But you hear Him waiting

Your ear hears His.

Your stillness is within.

Eyes still closed. Waiting.


Waiting still...








Jocelyn Arcentales

Being still and know Spoken Word and Poetry

Being still and being aware. Finding Jesus by stopping...

We yell. We scream. We rattle our hands at our God. And we are behind closed doors, none see. None know. And God is distant. And yet He is here.

He walks with us, aware of our unawareness of Him. And we think He isn't but He is. We think because our hearts burned when He speaks that He can not hear our whisper.

He whispers to the storm and it bows. The boat may break, but we can still take His Hand.

And in the corners of our heart, He knocks. He waits. With the answer we need.

Obey. Be quiet and just be. Be as small as when you are before a great sea, and trust the raging waves will slow to a trickle to heal your worn feet.

Be still know...

He is God.

Love God with all you heart, soul, mind, body. Love your neighbor as yourself.

In the secret-(Chris Tomlin) by Faith and Brandon

Learning to abide in the secret place Lord

Psalm 91... He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide in the Presence of the Almighty.

The secret place with God as in Psalm 91 is like looking for that intimate 'rib' of our Creator. It is a place we learn to go in pain, trials, and tribulations. And some, some choose to dwell in the secret place and to abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Make it your purpose to dwell here, waiting on the Lord.

I am God by Kirk Franklin ft. tobyMac

The benefits of being still before the Lord

Lift Him up and He will draw all men unto Himself.

The process of being still will grow into a lifestyle where in any moment God may be able to communicate with you. Waiting on the Lord is life giving. It keeps our attention from the desires of the flesh by being led of by the Spirit. Being quiet also helps us to prioritize our life, our day.

To recognize this world we live in and to not associate with, to be in it but not of it takes strength, courage and wisdom. It takes knowing this isn't our home. This is just a place which pales in comparison with the unseen, un-felt, and concealed place we call, home. Being still reveals things we never thought of, even after we laid down our anxiety, heartbreak, our worry, and our anger, among other emotions. It takes a fellowship with God unrivaled.
