Be still and KNOW

I wrote in my prayer journal today;

“Well, Lord, The Message is out; Be STILL and KNOW….Your message shared with  me so many years ago, it’s been shared! I felt this being a tremendous milestone in our sacred journey together. Once I clicked “PUBLISH” a sense of relief washed over me. I did what I was called to do.

I wonder… might I hear the words, “With you, I am well pleased?” Wink. 

I KNOW for certain, your desire, and that is to have your children come to KNOW you. Lord, I will continue to pray, discern and blog, trusting that the resonating wisdom that bubbles up and is shared daily is that of your Voice. May your wisdom be the words that flow from these pages…


So here we go… entry number 2.

There is a God-shaped hole in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing but only by God, the Creator made known through Jesus Christ. ~ Blaise Pascal

Listen carefully for a theme resonating here; Open your heart to His Word~

Acts 17:22-27~ Then Paul stood before the meeting of the Areopagus and said, “People of Athens, I can see you are very religious in all things. As I was going through your city, I saw the objects you worship. I found an altar that had these words written: TO A GOD WHO IS UNKNOWN. You worship a god that you don’t know, and this is the God I am telling you about! The God who made the whole world and everything in it is the Lord of the land and the sky. He does not live in temples built by human hands. This God is the one who gives life, breath, and everything else to people. He does not need my help from him; he has everything he needs. God began by making one person and from him came all different people who live everywhere in the world. God decided exactly when and where they must live. God wanted them to look for him and perhaps search all around him and find him, though he is not far from any of us. 

What I know for certain, is 2006’s encounter provided me an inner KNOWING that no one can argue or take away from me. I can only express it as, I know what I know. I began to recognize this God that used to seem so unknown and distant.  He was actually right there in my very midst.

Hmmm… words resonate….  “I began to recognize him”; to RECOGNIZE- when looking up its definition it means “to identify someone or something from having encountered them before; know again.” Wow! the paradox of that statement, of that experience. To recognize… to identify Someone or Something; having encountered them before; know again. HE WAS THERE ALL ALONG. I “knew” him but I didn’t KNOW HIM. I recognized this Presence as though I had experienced it before….it seemed quite familiar.


To this day, I am not sure how the shift happened. This chance Encounter, on an ordinary walk, through a wooded sanctuary, I realized God is not just confined to a building built by men. I also realized that not all pastors know it all, or hold all the truth just because they went to seminary ( I do not at all voice that as a negative). Knowledge is way more than just “of the intellect”, but it’s “of the heart” too. There is a known thing as spiritual knowledge, wisdom, that of God…it’s of this nature that I came to know him and recognize him.

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” ( John 17:3)

Be STILL and KNOW….Be still and KNOW that I am God.

I’m praying for you~
