Be Still: Spring Photos


"Be still and know that I am God."
Psalm 46: 10a

Pastor Jeff used just one Bible verse yesterday. Actually, he used half a verse.
It's only eight words.

It doesn't sound complicated.
You'd think it would be easier.
But it's more difficult than you'd think to turn off thoughts ...
... that scatter your heart and mind in as many directions as a dandelion in a puff of spring wind.
From Max Lucado:

In the midst of your daily storms, make it a point to be still and set your sights on Him. 
Let God be God. Let Him bathe you in His glory so that both your breath and your troubles are sucked from your soul ...
Be still. Be quiet. Be open and willing.
