Be Still

Standard

Today is not one of my better days. I’m tired. Fibromyalgia tired. Those of you who suffer with the affliction know what I mean. It’s an I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-but-I-feel-like-I-haven’t-slept-in-a-week kind of tired. And my body hurts. I don’t have the energy to write a full post — I know, you’ve heard that from me before and you will hear it again. Such is life with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Today I will just share one of my favorite Psalms with you. It has kept my head above water on many an occasion. Perhaps it will do the same for you.

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.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields[d] with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress

That’s it for me today. I’m going to go rest and be still, knowing that he is God and he is with me.
