Be Still...

"Step out of the traffic"
Psalm 46:10  The Message Bible

Life can be so noisy.
And so busy...
I am addicted to 'my white chair' in the morning.
My life is too cluttered and filled with 'auditory static' to not take the time
every morning to sit down and be quiet.
It takes discipline and focus
to master the skill of  doing nothing.
It can feel like a waste of time at first,
but is quite to the contrary.
It is my time to breathe,
empty myself of unproductive thoughts and emotions,
focus into view what is good and right,
and be filled with Hope, Faith, and Love.
Time is such a wonderful gift.  I don't want to waste it
by being distracted, confused, frustrated,
unforgiving, fearful, selfish, crabby, or just plain 'all about me'...
So I spend time
talking to the only one who can cure 
my magnetic pull towards all that is 'average'  for a common girl like me
and give me something much, much, better.
Something much more useful.
One of my favorite pieces of wisdom is    
He gives beauty for ashes...  
I just trade my useless stuff for His amazing gifts...
I'll take that any day!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
