He wants us to be still and know He is LORD so that while we are still we can hear His powerful whisper that empowers, heals, and eases us.
I know 2018 will likely not play out how my mind wants it to but I have to believe in God’s greater plan; the one I at times will not understand and will not be able to see, but is still the best one.
Whatever valley of trouble you’re in is nothing compared to what God has in store for you.
This is God opening our eyes to our need for Him alone.
The only thing you should allow yourself to be wrapped up in is Him.
