Still

I have taken these lyrics and put them by my sink, at my desk, and in my journal.

"Be still, my soul,
The Lord is on your side.
Bear patiently, the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to your God, to order and provide.
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul,
Your best your heavenly friend, 
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul,
Your God will undertake
To guide the future as he has the past.
Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake.
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul,
The waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while he lived below.

Be still, my soul,
Be still, my soul,
Be still."
I haven't blogged here in a while because sometimes struggles are too 
personal and yet even with the silence of this blog, it doesn't really matter - 
any time you want to hear from God - you can open His Word.
"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased
to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:32
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and anything good I have goes to Him. 
This blog may be still.  He's not.
