May 12

I send out daily Bible lessons from a book I use authored by Pastor Chuck Swindoll.

Here was the one for May 12. I liked it, felt it applies to the situation I am going through, so decided to put it here:

Be still...deliberately pause and discover that God is God.

Stop reaching back into your own treasure of security.

Stop trying to pull the strings yourself.

Stop manipulating people and situations.

Stop making excuses for your irresponsibilities.

Stop ignoring reality.

Stop rationalizing your way through life.

Stop all that!

How? You ask.

Initially: Be quiet.

The immortal, invisible, all-wise God, hid from your eyes, is at work.

Be very still, and, for a change, listen.

In quietness and trust is your strength.
Isaiah 30:15
