A simple word with so many ways of expressing the meaning. How are you reacting in this moment? It can engender a sense of danger or warning, or more widely, helping us to see in a different way.
As I write, I’m thinking about those times when I’ve stopped as my mind is travelling in all kinds of directions. A moment to ‘take stock’, gain our ‘bearings’, listen in the stillness.
There are so many voices demanding out attention at the moment, both inwardly and outwardly. Hear again those words of Jesus, as he and the disciples get caught in a storm on the Sea of Galilee. ‘Peace, be still…’…his calling into the maelstron of the storm. Immediately, the storm began to abate and the sound of stillness broke through into their reality.
So take some moments today, even in the noise, to ‘plug into’ the still, STOP moment; and give your soul some refreshment!
Blessings and peace be with you…always.
