Be still….

and know that I am God.  ~Psalm 46:10a

Friday Meme I have been kind of quiet lately.  Not that I still haven’t been reading and studying His word, its just that for some reason I haven’t had much to write about.  There are so many verses, passages, books, that have really spoken to me but I just don’t know how to put into words what they mean to me anymore. 

It just seems lately that He is telling me to be still.  To take it in and keep it for myself, to meditate on it… just be still and be with Him. 

Life right now is going really well and I only have our Father to thank for that!  He helped me to be a stronger woman, wife and mother!!  Not saying things are great everyday and there is never a problem, but things are so much better than they used to be!! 

I just thought I would share a few verses that have spoken to me lately.  Oh… and of course the whole book of James this past month was great too!  Too many verses in there that spoke to me!!  Since I am an Imperfect Wife and still a work in progress, there was a lot that spoke to me!! 

( The Imperfect Wives have been going over the book of James these past few weeks and it has been great!!)

 

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.~James 5:16

 

“For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. ~Isaiah 55:12

 

I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.'~ Psalm 122:1

 

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love.~ Ephesians 4:2

 

Live in harmony with each other. Don't be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don't think you know it all!~ Romans 12:16

 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. ~James 4:7

 

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.~Proverbs 14:1

 

But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.” ~Mark 5:36

 

At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep, For you, God, have put my life back together. ~ Psalm 4:8

 

There are so many more that have really spoken to me but since this post is long enough I figured I better stop.  I hope you all have a great and blessed weekend!!! Pin It

Just stopped by and as I was waiting for your blog to finish loading, I saw the verse for the day, "Don't have any fear of bad news, just keep trusting the Lord." (in my own words.) :) This blessed my heart, and then as I read your post well, that blessed my heart too! I have been there, when the Lord has led me to be quiet and not blog, and sometimes, no, often times, I'm that way, and one eensy (is that a word?) part of me wonders if I'm being a good "blogger."? Then the Holy Spirit reminds me that it's His blog to begin with, and I am not to conform to the world's idea of what a good blogger is. In fact, it's His will for us to be still at His feet and soak up His goodness until we're blessed enough that our cup runs over and then we can spill over to bless others, by His power. :)
So you keep on listening to the Lord, and He will continue to make you a blessing to others, for His glory. :)
Thanks!! These verses were MMmmmm, good!
