"Be still, and know that I am God. . . " ESV
We can let our minds work at causing the world around us to get more quiet. Stop thinking about tomorrow. Stop thinking about our finances. Stop thinking about our jobs or lack thereof. Stop thinking about our family issues. Stop thinking about our illnesses. Stop thinking about what we have, don't have, or want to have. We can be thinking of God and His great power, His love, His grace, and His mercy. This is the greatest spiritual exercise there is. It benefits not only our minds, but our spirits and bodies as well.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for allowing the noise of this world drown out the innumerable blessings You give to us each day. Help us to be still, to just make an effort to listen only to the sounds of Your presence all around us. We thank You and ask this in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen.
