THE POWER OF ABSOLUTE STILLNESS

australian-summer

Hello unexpectedly again. It’s me problematic but normal.

Yesterday I posted a blog entitled uniquely/contrasted   Several folk commented and I tried today to verify one of the pictures and acknowledge the source.   In my attempts to add this additional information I must have pressed something wrong because I now find the whole blog has been removed.   Not blaming anyone simply my inability to sometimes use the technology.    Today I was reminded that in our noisy world only those who know the power of absolute stillness can hear the world around them in the absolute beauty of our lives and also………..hear the Voice of God if He desires to speak to us. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!

I searched my photos and resources and this appeared as the most perfect image of stillness.   Sadly I have discovered it is of a painting and is not a photo although I do have several of Kookaburras.   Simply stop and think.   Heat of Summer Sun or Freezing Winter cold……how still can we be ……..how silent can we make the world around us….so we can really LISTEN.           A THOUGHT!.

Hope your day and  you week a flowing well.

Abundant Grace and Peace to you and yours.

 

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Your picture does present the kind of stillness which would encourage one to listen for the voice of God. I like your “Be still and know…:

  2. I flinched when I read you deleted your post. I hate when I do something like that, even though many times, if I rewrite, the new version is better than the original. It’s just the idea of time invested gone POOF! And maybe His way of getting my attention… 😉
