Today I want to encourage you all to really silence the noise around you. We easily get caught up in the hype and the noise around us that we forget to sit still. God placed a reminder on my heart today to silence the noise around us and to seek his wisdom and guidance. We can't do that if we're so focused on the advice and reports of the media every 5 seconds. Yes it's important to be aware of what's happening in the world but you have to find balance. You owe it to yourself to protect your peace. There's so much going on in the world right now and so many people are grieving but I believe that God is looking for us to be still during this time and to listen to him. He wants to give us peace and comfort but we're not sitting still long enough to receive.
We're running in a frantic because this is something we've never experienced before. It's hard to have faith, trust God and be in peace when people are losing their loved ones left and right, it's all understandable. I just want to challenge you to take some time today, even if it's 10 minutes to just sit in silence and mute the noise that has been stealing your peace, joy, and happiness. I feel peace in the word stillness. It's in stillness where we will find rest and peace.
My prayer today is that we silence the noise and take time to sit still before God. I pray that we will choose faith over fear. I pray that we will continue to trust God even when we don't know how. I pray that we will receive the ultimate comfort and peace that we are seeking as a nation.
-Yours Truly, Eb
