Be still and know that I am God. ~ Psalms 46:10

It’s amazing how a bible verse can bring so many things to perspective and calm the mind.

The past few days have been a maze of sorts for me. I have been contemplating, thinking, wondering about what the future holds for me, and if that which I am hoping for can ever be mine, in the way I want it to be.

And there’s always this feeling of uneasiness, of unsurity, of a haziness that makes clear view an impossibility… the heart racing, sweat dropping off the forehead… and amidst all this I find myself smiling for no particular reason…

I have been oscillating between extremes.

When I logged on to Facebook this morning, a friend’s status message read Psalms 46:10. And it sent a shiver down my spine. I suddenly realised what it is that God was trying to tell me all this while.

I might think, contemplate, worry, hope etc. etc. But I cannot change anything because I am not in control. I cannot be. It maybe my life, but it has come to me from someone else. And only He decides.

But the best part is in knowing that He always decides right.

All this restlessness, uneasiness, and everything that I am undecided/hopeful about need to be given up to Him.

I need to be still. I need to yield. I need to surrender. I need to know that He is God, my Father. And I need to know that He is in control.

Praise God for His love and grace. I am at peace, because He is in control. He doesn’t sleep nor slumber. What a blessed assurance.

He will not let your foot be moved, he who keeps you will not slumber. ~ Psalms 121:3
