Be still and know . . .

I have severe arthritis in my knees - especially my right one - and sometimes if I overdue it, I end up paying for it by being laid up for as much as a week until my knees stop swelling up and I can walk like a normal person again. I'm not very good at just sitting and letting others take care of things around me. I feel like I should be doing my share.

I'm trying to look at this differently. What is God wanting me to learn from this? When I have to sit and not be on the go, what am I thinking about? Usually, I'm thinking about how I wish I weren't just sitting here. Not real productive either mentally or spiritually.

Psalms 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God.

There is a message here. God always gives us good messages. As I'm sitting healing physically, I need to be healing spiritually by spending this time with the Lord. I need to be still and listen to Him. I need to know God! I know that all things work together for those who love God (Romans 8:28) and even me sitting in my recliner can work for my good.

God is so good, isn't He?

God bless you - Julie

  1. I have always loved that verse -- it's pulled me thru a lot of whirling confusion.

    I hope you are feeling better soon, my friend!
