WFW: Be Still

 Be still, I am God!
Psalm 46:10
Yesterday seemed to be overwhelming with the number of prayer requests and needs that we found out among our family and friends.

*  Hubs found out that one of is cousins was severely burned in a yard accident and was airlifted to Georgia.   It is very bad and we are waiting to hear news.

*  One of my friends lost her home to fire.     You may not know that this is my second friend to lose their home in the past couple of weeks.     Fortunately, Victoria and her family were all spared in the fire, but their home was totally destroyed.

* Two other friends are dealing with situations with their children... both completely different situations, but when it comes to our kids... enough said, right?

These three examples are really just the tip of the iceberg.    When I went to bed last night I was really feeling weighted down with all the requests that were on my heart.    I couldn't even consider my regular nighttime routine of reading.   

All I could think was "Be Still! I am God!"   

So many hurts, pains and so little answers.... "Be Still, I am God!"

No end in sight and really wanting some answers... "Be Still, I am God!"

All of a sudden I feel peace washing over me as I "Be Still because truly He IS God!"

Great verse and picture. I know that overwhelming feeling and to have God just wash this verse over you is precious. Praying for those you mentioned and that His peace and stillness will quiet you with His love. Happy WFW to you.

You are making the right choice to set your mind on the truth of Scripture. As you do, I pray that God will fill you with His peace. I am sorry for all painful situations you described. I can relate, lately!

Oh my goodness! Such pain and turmoil. It's so hard to be still, isn't it?
