I have been dipping in and out of an amazing little book the last few weeks
It is split into daily readings which are dated and I generally will look around the date that it is to find something to catch my eye. The day before yesterday the reading I looked at was all about Being Still. It was a reflection on what happens in life when storms are raging (rather pertinent for me at the mo!). It reflected on the way Jesus taught, when in a storm his words to the storm were Be Still, there were no instructions given to the disciples (just a little expressed exasperation!). However when Jesus had much teaching to impart, he takes his disciples (and sometimes thousands of others) to hill sides, to beaches, quiet places.
I find this so reassuring. I know that the stormy experiences I am going through at the moment are going to change me some what. It is lovely though to remember that I do not need to try and work out what those things are while the storms are raging. All I need to do is Trust Him and let him tell those storms to Be Still.
