“Do you want to live in peace and hope? It can be simple.
“All you have to do to live is insist on staying awake. Don’t flinch or fade; don’t forget or fake it. Just be. Accept who you’ve been made to be and let everything you do come from the impulses of seeking that God has placed in you.
“Is it possible to lean into God’s mystery just so? Enough that you can see the world around you as it was designed? As it has evolved?
“Doing this thing–this life–right is about slowing down. Making time still enough so you can say yes. That’s right. There. It is. Right now.
~ Dave Harrity in Making Manifest: On Faith, Creativity, and the Kingdom at Hand
In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
