One Way to "Be Still" Devotional (Words from the Lord series)

by Marijo Phelps  
9/12/2009 / Devotionals

I took today off without pay to clean the house. Early in the morning I hurt my knee and had to sit and ice it as it was so swollen.
Father, THANK YOU for the day off... for my precious husband who encouraged me to do this. Help us to keep our hearts tender towards You and towards each other!

In reflecting, I realized that my job situation was weird, the house we were trying to build and had prayed much about was uncertain (costs kept changing and going up and Mick was trying to get specifics from his bosses. My knee was hurting.)

The Lord reminded me about the purple iris I saw, in bloom in totally the wrong time of year. It is my favorite flower and I had never before seen one in bloom in the late fall, it was November. And I felt Him whispering to my heart "I AM the God of the impossible, trust Me".

Then I thought again about cleaning the house that's what I took this day off for (I thought) and in my daily devotional for that day's date "My daughter be still, be quiet and know that I am God.Mary chose the best part. Commune with your own heart on your bed and be still..

OK, Lord, please prepare my hubby's heart for a messy house.
