Have you ever gone and sat at a lake and listened to the sound of calmness? You sit there, and you close your eyes and meditate on the goodness of the father. It is so peaceful surreal. It takes your mind out of a panic state to peace. You have to allow your mind to transition to that peaceful place. I can recall a time sitting in my back yard looking into my swimming pool and the water was still. The wind was blowing, the trees where singing, birds where chirping, but the water was still. That is just like God when we are in a panic state and should we decide to trust him… there is stillness.
In that stillness, we learn that our most challenging disappointments also becomes our greatest encouragement. Be encouraged friends.
