Be Still, My Soul

Anyone else need this today besides me?

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side; Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heav’nly Friend Thro’ thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake to guide the future as He has the past. Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake; All now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hast’ning on when we shall be forever with the Lord. When disappointment, grief and fear are gone, Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored. Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past, All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

Katharina Von Schlegel (tr. by Jane Borthwick)

Peace.

This is the 3rd reference I have received to “be still” in the last 18 hours. I am stopping to listen to what God is saying to me. I think He is trying to get my attention.

Thank you Teri. It’s been a rattling, grim 24, so the invitation to be still, to hope, to wait, these are a balm to me. Thanks.

This brought a sweet sigh…just the refreshment I needed to start my day. God has clearly lifted one big burden, but another is pressing down…I needed this reminder to be still and rest in Him. Thank you, Teri!

These words are like honey over my wounded soul today…

thy heav’nly Friend Thro’ thorny ways leads to a joyful end…

He’s been encouraging me to “rest” but I am very bad at it 🙁
