Be Still

I don’t know why I don’t have Psalm 46 tattooed to some part of my body already. It’s something that I need to read constantly. There’s something about the way I work that I become obsessed with the things that technology can do for me. And this isn’t like an “Ask not what technology can do for you” speech. I’m just saying, I need some help unplugging every once in awhile. And lately, this has been helping me unplug.

So take just a few minutes. Put your phone on mute. Breathe deep for a couple breaths. Place yourself in this picture and then Psalm 46 is just underneath it when you’re ready.

God is our refuge and strength,
   a very present help in trouble. 

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
   though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 

though its waters roar and foam,
   though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
   the holy habitation of the Most High. 

God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;
   God will help it when the morning dawns. 

The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
   he utters his voice, the earth melts. 

The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our refuge.

Come, behold the works of the Lord;
   see what desolations he has brought on the earth. 

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
   he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;

   he burns the shields with fire. 
‘Be still, and know that I am God!

   I am exalted among the nations,
   I am exalted in the earth.’ 

The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our refuge.
