Be still


When I walk in the garden God speaks to my heart in the details saying "Be still."

Reflection:
Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
...
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
..
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God"
