I turned off the light and slipped beneath the layers of my bedding.
I felt stillness. It surrounded me and filled me.
Scripture tells us to be still. We have some responsibility. We need to still ourselves at times, and that process looks different but can happen at the end or beginning of the day or in the middle of a crowd and chaos.
Stillness isn’t something we create. It’s present and available. Bu we don’t seek or settle into it at all times. We don’t recognize it or allow it to impress upon us.
Stillness is always a choice.
I felt stillness as I laid with my eyes wide open in my bed. And I savored the beauty and nourishment of the stillness.
God is good.
