HE is the one in control ..... not me ................................ and ...........................

Be Still........

isn't it just one of the hardest things ...... to be still...........................be still & do nothing ....................be still and listen to someone else & really hear what they are saying............................be still without the television .....without the radio....................without any other distractions...............and................................just listen......and....................KNOW that HE IS GOD!..........................and................HE has our back.......how long has it been since we just sat...................and listened !
.................................................. i am blessed !
