I had a word in mind for 2013, but kept having second thoughts about it and knew it must not have been what God wanted for me. As I sat down to do my devotionals Monday morning, a similar word kept coming to mind, but there were actually 2 words that go together.....
Calm and Still
As I searched for a Bible verse to go along with my words, the most popular was "be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).
But....as I went a little farther, this was the verse that really stood out to me because it contains both "calm" and "still".....
He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves.
Of course, I have no idea what God is trying to prepare me for with those words....but, I already know that with my personality I can get a bit frantic and on edge at times.....okay, A LOT on edge!!! My prayer is the He will calm the storm inside me....or, what's going on around me....to a whisper (He whispers sweet peace to me) and will still the waves of emotion....or, the storm that's brewing (inside, or out)!!
I also know that I'll be doing a lot more of this.....
"Breathe in Jesus....breathe out Deb"
So, Sweet Reader, I have two words for 2013....
"Calm" and "Still"!!!
In HIS Most Precious L♥ve....and with mine, too!!!
p.s....after I had already written this post, I received an e-mail with these words from Tim's Inspiration. I definitely think God chose the right words for me for 2013!!!
God whispers in your soul and speaks to your mind.
Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at you.
It's your choice:
