Come and sit with me!
Do you trust me enough to walk my way?
Like Martha, you try too hard.
Accept the fact you get tired
and make allowances for yourself.
Do not stress over little things.
Be still, like Mary, and simply listen.
Psalm 37:7a, 34 (NIV) “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;…Wait for the Lord and keep his way.”
King David shows us a great picture of waiting until God’s appointed time for him to be crowned a king. Yet he was anointed many, many years previously by Samuel the prophet. Though David was being hunted by Saul, he wrote many of the Psalms during this waiting time.
Recently, my sister and I decided to go to a campground as part of our yearly visit and we did have a wonderful time undistracted by the minutiae of life at home. Her children and grandchildren visited and enjoyed the cool pond. We also enjoyed long walks and talks in the morning. With my brother joining us, there were times of singing praises and listening to old camp-meeting songs which increased the presence of God in our lives. I want to make more time to be still and relax and enjoy the journey.
