Be Still


We all abide within a Great Love.


1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you.


Why do we worry?

How can worry possibly help us?

I sometimes catch my mind as it repeats the same old “what if?” scenarios…usually with painful outcomes! Thankfully, I now also hear what’s becoming a more familiar “other” voice.

It says, “Do not fear.”

Jesus said that over and over. “Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span (Matthew 6:27)?”

The only time that is real…is now. God is in this moment.

And in this moment God loves us thoroughly and completely just as we are.

There is nothing we have to do to earn that love. We have nothing to prove.

How freeing that is…if you only believe it!

Why not accept this Good News? It is the Gospel!

Open yourself to God’s abiding Presence within you…then feel your worries dissolve.
