Mid-Week Evotional

Dear Friends:

We hope this week's E-votional brings you all the news, information, and insight you've been wanting. Please feel free to comment on or share your weekly message with friends, family, and co-workers.

"Be Still, and Know That I Am God" (Psalm 46)

Be still.....

and in the quietness, the stillness,

the silence....



to all that is often passed by,

unheard, in the rush of a busy life..


and wonder.....

in awe

at the softest sound,

the smallest detail...

and in reverence,

give thanks to God, the Creator,

for the marvels of God's creation.

Be still, and know that I am God.

For God knows the need

of the human mind and body

to "Be still"

to have time with God,

to be nourished,

to be refreshed....

in the quietness,

the stillness,

the silence,

God created.....

Be still, and know that I am God.

Be still...

and deeply in touch with your inner self,

be aware

of your Living, Loving God......

whose presence is ever near for you

in your joys,

in your heartaches

in your time of deepest need

to rejoice with you......

to comfort you.....

to encompass you in God's love

and give you peace.

Be still, and know that I am God.

Blessings and peace

Pastor Gillian
