“Silence! Be Still!”…”Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” – Mark 4:39 NLT
This topic is so hard for me. Learning to be Still at times seems so impossible. I am hurt and uncomfortable and I honestly just don’t want to be still. I hate the thought of sitting with my thoughts. I know my anxiety and depression are bound to catch up to me, but can I just keep running from them for a little bit long? 🙁
I pray to God for him to take these feelings of loneliness and the fear of forever being incomplete away. Yet, I run from them. I don’t wait for God like I should.
I understand that I need to literally BE STILL. Rest in God’s comfort and find peace but it is soo much easier to say it than do it. Then of course, I have the looming question of “How do I start?”
- Read the Bible.. seriously not just popular verse but start with a chapter. I was told a good place to start is the book of Matthew
- Let your mind wonder and write it down. All the scary thoughts I try to avoid don’t seem so big on a piece of paper.
- Pray. Especially when it gets to heavy for your heart to carry. If you have time to worry then you have time to pray! Also it’s okay to ask a close friend or family member to pray for you. <3
- Breathe! Take it day by day. Trust in God and believe that everything will be okay.
I pray that this post helps somebody today. Be blessed!
