One Step at a Time: Be Still

Life can often be a chaotic journey. With the ups and downs of life, it can be quite hard to know how to be calm and strong despite the raging seas. There are things in this world we don`t know how to handle. Because of this, there are many uncertainties in our lives which can be very bothersome. And because of these uncertainties, being harmonious, focused and patient are difficult things to do especially when we`re battling with our own selves.

Being still will benefit us physically, emotionally, spiritually and even financially. Being still will help us to ease our bodies from the stress and fatigue we could`ve experienced if we were anxious and distressed. It`ll calm our minds not to worry too much. It will help us think clearly and properly because our minds are at a tranquil state. It`ll also help us get to know more God in a non-aggresive way. We`ll be able to grow quite peacefully in our spiritual walks. Being still will not only help our bodies, minds and souls, but it will also help us with our financial matters. If a person`s physically capable, emotionally stable and well founded in his/her spiritual beliefs, other aspects of life like financial health will follow along a person`s whole being.

Being still doesn`t literally mean don`t make any actions. Being still means being prepared, having the right mindset and having the appropriate behaviors to face any situation in life. A person who`s still can often be characterized as patient, wise, assertive, and prepared.

Life is indeed short. Time flies by so fast that one day we`ll wake up in the realization that we could`ve lost so much of our time. Therefore, we must enjoy it to the fullest and be still because everything will be alright.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” - Psalms 46:10 (NIV)

Have a blessed life.
