Be still, and know that He is God.

Be Still, and Know That I Am God. Ps.46:10
Sometimes it's difficult to hear Him with all of the "noise" that's going on around me. 
Finding a place to focus on HIM is a conscious decision for me. A place where there are no distractions....no phone, no t.v., no people; nothing to compete with my time with HIM.
HE speaks to me in different ways.
The waves....a reminder of His majestic creation....puts me in a place of worship, and the realization of His supreme Glory.
The sights and sounds of the waves pounding at the shore is enough to cause tears to well up in my eyes.
 Finding places of quiet...after a storm. Being able to take a minibreak from the world. Turning my ear to His voice. Letting Him soothe my soul(mind, will, and emotions). Refreshing my spirit with His Presence.

 God pours out blessings everyday...but sometimes we have to actively seek them out...like going out to see the sunset. It's there, but we have to make the effort to go out and see it!!! It's the same thing with blessings. They are there....sometimes we have to open our hearts, and seek Him to receive what He has for us. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matt.7:7

 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing. Zeph.3:17  Think about how joyful you are when you hear the voice of a loved one. When one of your family members walks into the room and opens their arms to give you a welcome hug.  Our Father feels that way when we talk to HIM!! HE loves hearing our voice! I LOVE hearing from HIM, as well!! In the quiet, in the waves, in the thunder....in peaceful times, during turbulent times, and storms of life when I seek His face. HE speaks to my heart...my spirit.

Find your quiet place.....turn your ear to our Father. He longs to speak to you. Be still, and know that HE is GOD!!
In Christ Jesus.

  1. Debbie, This is a wonderful post. I feel closer to God in a quiet place. My best friend once said a friend of ours who went fishing on Sunday, could just as easily go to church. I told her, fishing ,may be his church. He might have been enjoying the quiet with God. Blessings to you my dear sweet friend. I love you Debbie. xoxo, Susie

  5. So true! I have to purpose in my heart to focus on God and His goodness and His many blessings. I have to put aside life's cares and focus on His faithfulness to me and mine and His beauty all around us. When I do turn my ear to Him, my spirit is lifted up.
    Thank you, Debbie, for this beautiful post!
