Be Still......

This has been on my heart and mind a lot these last few weeks we've been in Thailand. Be still. Something that is SO hard and almost unnatural for me.
To be in the moment.
To not try to always do two things at once.
To be here with my family, physically and mentally.
To just listen.
I always felt like I was being lazy if I wasn't always doing something.
But I'm learning it's ok.
God wants me to be still, and have my full attention.
Because only when I'm still and quiet do I have the chance to listen to Him.
To hear His words for me.
That He loves me and all my insecurities.
That He has a plan.
That He knows my fears.
He knows my dreams.
He hears what keeps me up at night and says,
"I've got it, just be still".

This is my lesson right now.
And it's not easy for me, and I fight it.
But I am learning.
