Still Until

“Be still and know that I am God.”

Verses like Psalm 46:10 leave me in wonder. Asking me to “be still” is like asking a 2 year old not to explore.  But recently I connected the 2 imperatives and I am finally beginning to understand what it means to be still….and why.

I’m still limping

It was early November 2013 when my life unraveled.  Some say I should be over it all by now.  I am told to forgive myself, shake it off, and that I should move on to my destiny. And although I am functioning far better than I have in recent times, I still limp.  But that may not be a bad thing.
