Between soccer and football, and school this and church that, life is busy.
Babies require round the clock care. Teens test our patience. And with children of other ages in between, who has a moment to spare?
Many moms, myself included, have fallen for the idea that if we go to church on Sunday and even participate in group Bible studies that we’re spending enough time with God.
But are we?
Are we truly silencing ourselves before the Lord, sitting at His feet, quieted…and listening?
Are we sharing our hearts with Him, pursuing Him, like Mary did?
Or are we too busy with the stuff of life, like Martha, to have time to slow down? To sit down. To be still.
I’m excited about the True Beauty Series by Lisa Chan. Be Still is the first video in the series, and it talks about being still before the Lord. Lisa asks challenging questions. Do I have a gentle and quiet spirit? Am I more caught up with the things of this world than I am in Him? How would I behave if Jesus Himself were to walk into my living room today? Sure, I’d sit down with Him, and listen to Him, and you’d better believe I’d pour out my heart to Him and search His heart for answers. I would ask Him to stay and help me.
Jesus is here and available right now. Right here.
So why would any one of us pass up the opportunity to be still with Him?
If you spent one hour with Him like that in your living room, would you ever be the same?
If you spent time with Him like that every single day, would your life change?
Thanks to Lisa Chan for this excellent reminder!
