Shhhhhhhh………….

shhhhhhhhh

Psalm 46:10-11

Be still, and know that I am God;
       I will be exalted among the nations,
       I will be exalted in the earth.

 

It’s almost here.

Christmas Eve.

The birth of our Savior.

The birth of our King.

Help me, Lord, to refocus.

Help me, Lord, to shhhhhhhhhhhh.

I don’t want to miss it, like I have so many years before.

I slip so often, though, when I look at my long list of things to do.

I slip into a stressful spirit and disappoint myself.

Oh, Lord, I long to be still and simply KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOD.

I love you, Lord.

Without You my life has no purpose.

Without You Christmas has no meaning.

Without You my grief has no hope.

Without You being still would frighten me, because it would awaken me to the reality that something is missing.

But with You, Lord, I can “be still” and feel peace.  Perfect, wonderful peace.

Because You are my Father, my Lord, my Savior, my King, my Comforter, my Provider, my Redeemer, my Everything.

So, Lord, I close my eyes and softly whisper,

Shhhhhhhhh,

And in this blissful moment of total awareness of You I ask that You keep my heart right here in this state of peace even when the world calls me to wrap gifts, attend parties, cook meals, clean bathrooms, run errands, pack suitcases, and much, much more.

Shhhhhhhhh.

I want to hear You, Lord.

Listening,
