Be Still and Know

This came in my in-box... wanted to share:

Be Still and Know

In my life I have faced many struggles.

I am human and by nature I have grown sin weary and overburdened.

My hands have worked alone, in vain to build masterpieces
that always fall short of perfection.

In the midst of despair, I place my discouraged heart
in the hands of the one who softly whispers,
“Be still and know that I am God.”

I place my confidence in the one who faithfully works
to do what is positively right for me.

I rely on the perfect knowledge that keeps Him from doing
anything in my life that is not exactly what I need.

He is the Lord of creation, and yet He is committed to gently
knocking at the door of my heart.

I adore the God whose love is so pure that He sent His son to
live a perfect life for me. His love is so holy that He sent
His son to shed His blood on the cross for me.

I treasure the God who will never stop forgiving me.

My hope is in the one who knows the depths of my heart and still
loves me so passionately and watchfully.

The one who softly whispers,

“Be still and know that I am God.”
