It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the rest of the week.
What does it mean to “be still” to you? To me the answer depended on who was talking to me.
- From my Mom it meant to stop moving as she was trying to tie my shoe.
- From my Grama it meant to stop talking as she was trying to think.
- From my Dad it meant to stop moving.
Regardless of your answer here is a picture of what this means to me. Imagine you are in a pond that is knee deep and has some nice moss growing in the bottom of it. You have dropped something and are attempting to look for it. You keep moving to see if you can find it. The more you move the more the clear water becomes a very murky, velvety forest green. And then you realize in order to find it you need to be able to see. So you stop moving for a bit until the water clears up. You then look and can’t find it. So then you move to a different spot and then pause for the water to clear up. You do this several times until you find what you are looking for.
Why am I talking about mossy ponds? Because mossy ponds are much like life. If you don’t take the time to rest a bit or pause for life to make sense then it often is too chaotic to see what you are looking for. Make sure to rest enough so life clears up for you.
