be still

 

 

Be Still and Know that I am God.

Psalm 46:10 (NIV®)

 

 

 

Be Still

 

May you be stilled by unexpected wonder

Your very breath momentarily stolen,

Startled by the presence of beauty 

 

May you be stilled by the tenderness of touch

The steadying arm of love,

Held in the moment of stumble

 

May you be stilled by generous words of truth

Restored by the cadence of care and kindness,

Delighted in your own being

 

May you be stilled by a father’s welcome

Humbled by his joyful embrace

Safe in the belonging of home.
