When We Make Life Too Overwhelming, and God says "Be Still"

Saturday, I was visiting with a friend while she fed her baby.

She made the comment that he often gets fidgety while he’s eating and distracted by everything going on around him, and he can’t focus enough to just take what she’s giving him.

A godly, older friend was sitting nearby.

He made an observation I haven’t been able to shake out of my mind.

“We’re often that way with our Heavenly Father.

We think God wants so much out of us, when in reality, He just wants us to be who He made us to be.”

We delight in a child who is resting contentedly, having received everything he needs.

Scott Fowl

Our heavenly Father does too.

“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
