A Verse A Day

Just a few moments ago I was cleaning up the kitchen from dinner, thinking about all I should do tonight, all that needs to get done this week, this month, tomorrow before 8 AM. I was also stewing about what someone had inadvertently done that annoyed me. That's when God quietly gave me this verse:

"Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!" Psalms 46:10

Be still. And know. Be still. And know. All of my striving, all my effort is in vain if it is not for the glory of God. And so I thank you Lord for gently reminding me to take a few minutes to breath a prayer to you, to give it all to you.

I didn't remember the second part of the verse, but as a bonus, I'm typing during a thunderstorm...that is cause to "recognize and understand" that He is God and He will be exalted in the earth.

I changed the way I subscribe to blogs, and somehow you got lost along the way!

I came over to see what you've been up to, and Lo and Behold! Here you are doing AVADIJ! I am so blessed to see what you've been doing with the challenge! It's so cool to see how He is speaking to you in His word- and how He is speaking to me by catching up on your blog! SO cool! I'm going to add a link to you on my Role Call entry so others can come on over here too!
