A Time to Be Still

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

“There’s not enough time for….”

“I can’t believe how fast time is going!”

I think most of us have said something similar to one of these statements at least one time recently, right? I know I have. 

Be Still

2 Corinthians 5:1-10  “For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.   So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord,for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. “

Growing up, I hardly ever missed a day of school. I remember very occasional days of staying home with a stomach bug, but that never lasted more than about a day or so. A couple of years in school I even had perfect attendance. Being sick was rarely an issue for me.
