God wants our attention in the midst of this hurried and busy world. He wants us to frame our lives around him and the moments he has created for us.
We are busying ourselves to death.
Our minds are lost.
Our walk has been disturbed.
God wants us to shed our desires, our stuff, and our distractions so that we can find him.
Our greatest and most destructive sin may just be “being busy.” It is robbing us of the moments right in front of us. We have to learn to resist the anxious momentum of the world. We need to see quietness and rest as our salvation. Christ is our rest, our peace. He is the gaps and moments of our days. He is there to free us from the exhaustion, to direct our passions and lives. If we let our minds be consumed and abused by the world’s stuff, we will lose our ability to know God and show him to the world and our families.
~Matt Knisely in Framing Faith
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 be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
