S is for Still


Still is a word that seems to take most of our lifetime to learn. Or at least to implement.
The Bible says to be still and know that I am God.
Being is still means more than not talking or moving. As we age being still in one spot for more than twenty minutes usually means you get stiff. I think God meant for us to LISTEN and that
takes being still. Still in the
is more than not talking or thinking, it means to pay attention. Hear what is being said and then thinking about it.
Taking action, if needed but hear all that is being said and then determine what you should do. This ability comes with age and wisdom. As we age we need to listen more than ever, because we sometimes lose some of our ability to hear.

Just so we are all on the same word, I am not talking about a moonshine still. Or still as in, " Are you still here?" but quiet.
Still as in quiet and listening.

Be still and know.                                                                                                                       


  1. Beautiful words, my dear. I sometimes have to start with prayer to quiet my churning thoughts. Then I feel able to breathe, and listen, too. What a blessing. My blog at is number 1219 on the A to Z list today. Looks like our numbers our still dropping, unfortunately. Best wishes! And I really like the name of your blog, by the way.
