Be Still and Know……

I am speeding down the road, running late for school ( I am a teacher) yesterday. I am attempting to drive, shove a sugared, blueberry doughnut into my mouth ( I know….doughnuts are NOT good for me!), and the radio is blaring. My mind is running 100 mph thinking of all the things I need to do. I quickly pull in to a parking space at school, I am about to get out of the car, and I hear these words on the radio…..

To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice

It is at that profound moment in  the midst of my chaotic, doughnut stuffing, fast driving, late for work, moment that God speaks to my heart to Be still and know……..all that I need is be with You, and in the quiet HEAR your voice.

How can I hear God’s voice if I never have a quiet moment!  How can I?

I can not hear His voice if I never have a still moment!

So ladies, please pour yourself a cup of coffee,  or tea, sit for a moment and reflect on how important God’s word is to us, and how important it is to be still and quiet in our day, so we can HEAR His voice!

I am off to a quiet place, to stay and rest and hear His voice.


  1. I have been doing a lot of this lately. There are so many times that I am ministered to through music and this song is definitely an excellent reminder.

  2. I have soooo been there this week. Saying yes, when I should say NO… today is my quiet day and I am going to take full advantage. Take it easy this long weekend, hopefully you can have some still, quiet moments.

  3. Excellent post! Lately, whenever I am listening to my radio just the right song comes along my way to encourage and help me through my day. It’s awesome how God does that! Thanks for the encouragement to be still and reflect on Him.

    Have wonderful weekend!

    In Him~

  4. Thanks for the reminder! Even on this holiday weekend, when we’re supposed to relax and slow down, we had a hectic day. But this evening my oldest daughter and I went for a walk. Even though I wasn’t alone, it was the perfect way to end the day – walking in the dark, enjoying her company. Now if only my husband and I could carve out some quiet time!

  5. Yes, so much is revealed in the quiet moments. It’s a shame we seem to run from them rather than embrace the fact that it is ok to just sit still.
