For However You Are

For however you are....whether life is quiet or fast pace...God has a word for you:

Being Still - Be still, and know that I am God.... Psalm 46

Sitting - Martha had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said...Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.... Luke 10

Standing - Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.... Ephesians 6

Walking - Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.... Matthew 11

Running - Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us....Hebrews 12

Soaring - But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.... Isaiah 40

Is God challenging you to sit and listen? Is He giving you the strength to stand? Or has He invited you to soar? Where do you see yourself in this season of your life?

Love this post! I am always amazed at your ability to take scripture and make it so clear and applicable.

God is definitely giving me the strength to stand in this season of my life. And He has whispered promises in my ear of soaring, so I am really excited about that!

I am definitely learning to "be still" in this season of my life. There is nothing I can do to physically help the situation. Just to pray and be still...

Like the one song that says: Be still and know I am God.

Love you Lynn!

Oh Lynn, I feel SO busy all the time and get si caught up in the stuff of babies and taking care of my home and hubby...I really wish I was better at sitting and listening, meditating. This was a good encouragement and funnily enough the pics really inspired me too.....made me think "I want to be there". As always Lynn you simplify and make the truths of Christian life accesable.

Thank you Odera, Careese and Ruth for taking the time to read and comment! Adding more than one picture is a new skill for me, thanks for appreciating them :)
