Stillness

Try to stop for a moment… Think about nothing…. Absolutely nothing…

Give it a few seconds…..

A few more, stop reading and really let it sink in…

 

 

 

It’s difficult right?

I’ve noticed that when I try to be still and be quiet, my mind never really stops. I find myself always thinking, always worrying, always planning, always “being productive”, or always filling the time in my mind with random thoughts.

Get in the practice of being at peace.
Practice taming the raging monkey in the cage that is your mind.
Focus on the Lord, even just one simple aspect of Him.
His Love.
His Kindness.
His Justice.
His Mercy.

Stop your actions, both physical and mental, for a few minutes.
Take some time and focus on an aspect of what really matters.
