Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God
This verse is running through my mind today for a reason. I am anxious about a decision my husband and I need to make regarding one of our children. I want to make the RIGHT decision. I want what will bring about the best possible outcome for my child.
Then I am reminded by that quiet whisper to Be still and know that I am God. Why is it that I always need reminding of that wonderful truth? Oh yeah, it' because of my imperfect nature and my need to try and control things MYSELF! Funny that I should know that doesn't usually work out well. I'm the kind of person who sees a problem and I try to fix it. There are so many things beyond my capability of fixing.
I'm also reminded that for as much as I love my child, God loves him so much more. He entrusted my son to me but he is HIS. So, as I write this I breath a sigh of relief that I can share my heart with the Lord and then be still.
