Stand Still

I have only to stand still, though I want to run. In truth, I have no where to go… There is nowhere to hide. The worries are all in my head. This, I know to be true… The question was formed, that was my chance! The words – they didn’t come… My answers were vague, confusion reigned. What was the reason? What held me back?

Hindsight is 20/20… I can look back and see, those thoughts that troubled me – those “signs” I thought I could see… I had only to stand still. It is not for me to choose. It is not for me to decide. At the current it is not for me to know. I have only to continue to do that which is right. Obedience. By getting some things out of the way, seems to have opened a new door?

Stop turning to the left. Stop turning to the right. Stop looking to the past. My greatest folly! Look ahead, dear one, look ahead. “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord…” (Psalms 121:1-2 KJV). 

There are times in life when He calls us to action. Other times we are called to let go of that thing – hands off, stand still and watch Him move, in all of His glory. I am excited to see His handiwork, as I stand still.

So, here I’ll stand, as I am told, until I am instructed otherwise. I will wait, listen, keep doing what I’ve been doing… And when the time comes, I’ll be ready. Though I am standing still, I am always preparing – we never know the hour in which we will be called to action…

  1. This is a very good post! I didn’t know you subscribed to other ones. That’s pretty cool babe! And this post is very true. My fears and anxieties are just distractions meant to keep me (my mind) busy with things God has intended me to think about, fix, ponder on or worry about. It’s hard to walk away from something when you’ve been doing it for so long. It’s hard to let go even when you know the thing is killing you. Because you want to fix it.

    1. I was really speaking to myself. It is so challenging to walk away from things and stop worrying about things that He wants to take care of for me (us). In my (our) hands, it is nothing, in His hands, He will create a masterpiece far beyond my (our) mind(s) can comprehend.
