Be Still…



Be Still…

Third F
Be still, and know that I am God….” Psalm 46:10
I appreciate multi-tasking. Although it’s a recently added word to our lexicon, the feat of being able to do several things at one time didn’t begin with this generation. Millennials who text, type, and talk at the same time have nothing on the mother who balances a baby on her hip, puts in a load of wash, and instructs her 3-year-old not to run on the just-mopped floor, all while consuming a half-eaten sandwich. I’m afraid all the multi-tasking is making it harder to appreciate the beauty found in a singular accomplishment. It’s getting difficult to focus on the moment. What might happen if we took the time to not just hear what someone says, but pause to listen. Not methodically check items off our to-do list, but engage them. Not rush through obligatory morning devotions, but wait upon the Lord. No one accomplished more in his brief span on earth than Jesus. And no one was more fully present. Jesus said he did nothing but what he saw his Father doing (John 5:19). Constant communication with God taught Him how to value every single moment. He experienced no conflict between the stillness of knowing God and the efficiency of working His plan. If we hope to be more present in the present, I don’t know a better place to start than through emulating Jesus’ ongoing communion with God — of letting His presence infuse our present. Father, forgive us for rushing through our days without pausing to invite You in. Please help us be more aware of Your presence, whether we find ourselves in the mundane or spectacular. Be with us. Amen. Take Action Right now…let’s pause…be still…know He is God…and savor it…..

MoleSkin:
It is “Free to Lead”… not “Free to Follow”. 
When asked if I could take lead on Gumby this week, my first thought was hesitation.  YHC had not ever taken a Q lead at this AO and was more than slightly intimidated by the idea.  However, with no valid reason to decline and having attended more than once at this AO my hesitation gave way to Q planning. 

F3 would not be what it is, if we as pax did not step up and take LEAD.. even when you are out side your comfort zone. 

This message needs to ring true for all of us.. Requests from Site Qs to the regular attending pax to take a Q have far to often been met with silence.  For those that do not step up, I simply ask you..  Are you free to Lead.. or do you simply Follow?

Swissmiss and Tweetsie:  Thank you for the opportunity to lead your AO this morning.
