Life is crazy.

Hectic.

Busy.

Hard.

And sometimes overwhelming.

Last night in our small group time at youth, our ladies began to talk about the need to slow down. To pray. To worship. To quit wasting time.

Today, for my blog, I want to encourage you to do just that. Take this moment to be still and know that He is God. He is Good. He is you fortress. Your ever present help in times of struggle. He is faithful. He is just. And, His grace is sufficient for you.

Read this Psalm and then take a moment to breath, pray and worship, even if it’s just 5 minutes.

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,

    a very present help in trouble.

2Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,

    though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

3though its waters roar and foam,

    though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

    the holy habitation of the Most High.

5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;

    God will help her when morning dawns.

6The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;

    he utters his voice, the earth melts.

7The Lord of hosts is with us;

    the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8Come, behold the works of the Lord,

    how he has brought desolations on the earth.

9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

    he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;

    he burns the chariots with fire.

10 “Be still, and know that I am God.

    I will be exalted among the nations,

    I will be exalted in the earth!”

11 The Lord of hosts is with us;

    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
