Still

in-the-appalachian-mountains

“Be still and know
that I am God.” We owe
no less than every minute, every day.
Before our eyes,
He spreads the wondrous skies
and hangs the stars in glorious array.

Let lives exude
eternal gratitude
like mountain streams. His goodness, undeterred
by doubting minds,
flows freely as it winds
through ever deeper channels of His Word.

Our boundless debt
reflects in others met
with genuine forgiveness and goodwill
from hearts at rest
in knowing we are blessed
beyond imagination. Love can spill
from unexpected places when we’re still.
