An Important Lesson...
Guest Artist: Cheryl
(Some of you may know her as KC Mom)
This is such a wonderful gift that Cheryl has been kind enough to share with all of us. It was actually a present from Cheryl’s good friend Jennifer who created it and gave it to her at a time when she needed it most. What a wonderful friend! And how awesome of Cheryl to share this special treasure with us. Instead of boasting about her own natural talents, she focused on a friend. How special is that?
Additionally the message of it speaks to all of us loud and clear. It is like our own little message board that we can take notice of and apply to our lives. If you’re like me, you say, “Oh, I can do that! I’ll slow down as soon as I get everything done!” Does that sound familiar? How many of us have said that at one time or another? Families and work are fulfilling, but they can also detract from quiet time for ourselves. Such is the map of a busy life because the road is paved with many activities.
So, what about a time to “Be Still and Know that I am God?” Does it go by the wayside?
Does it take a backseat to all of the other pressing matters in your life? I decided that this might be a perfect time to find your “stillness” and I will write something that is an active prayer....You can add to it any way that you want. But, I will get you started.
Thank you, Cheryl for reminding us that we all need this.
We thank you for this time to concentrate on you. We thank you for your many blessings upon ourselves and our families. We are grateful for your guidance and know that you never leave our side.
We come before you with an attitude of gratefulness for all that you have done for us. We thank you for these minutes that can bring peace to our hearts and comfort everlasting.
We are so appreciative of the wondrous ways you have manifested in our lives and for making the crooked places straight. We ask that we can be a beacon to others and share the true joy and peace we feel from within.
(And now you can pray to Him in quiet and add to this prayer in your own words.)
