Stand Still and Wait

Good Morning Saints,
Spring has finally peeked into Colorado, but I am not counting on warm days, as it could snow any minute. In fact, it snowed a few days ago;-) Last night, while reading my Bible and meditating on Him, I realized how difficult it is to "stand still" and wait upon the Lord. If you are like me, you like to make things happen-move forward-find a solution. But, truly, the only real solutions to our problems and daily situations, come from the Lord. When we figure out our solutions without the intervention of the Lord, it's like placing a Band-Aid on a torn ligament. Yep, we're limited and we need to recognize it. When we recognize the narrowness of our minds and hearts, the Lord can work tremendous miracles through us. Realizing that all of us house blotches of sin and ignorance upon our hearts, despite the good-works, prayers, or accolades we may have on our sleeves, opens our eyes and hearts to the Lord and each other.  If your heart belongs to Him, you cannot spew hate and ignorance, for it is against everything He stands for. Let's stand still and allow Him to work. Let's allow our opinions of each other to stand still, in the knowledge that we cannot see, nor can we handle the whole picture. Let's still our tongues, unless they are to bring forth fruit for His Kingdom. Let's stand still and act when our hearts have been given to Him. Standing still and holding your tongue has to be a deliberate act. Take it from me: It's difficult! Blessings, Saints!

Scripture for the Day
Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shallrun, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
