There have been so many times, for me, it seems God can’t get my attention during the day, so He’ll wake me up at night. I know to some people that sounds strange, but I’m still a simple country girl and that kind of thing just seems normal. Last night was one of those times where my busy little brain had been running in circles and I woke up to a song in my head I hadn’t thought of for many many years.
I Need to Be Still, by BJ Thomas, was a song a friend taught me years ago. Part of the words are “When there’s trouble all around and my soul cries out for rest, when it feels like I’m failing even though I’ve done my best, when decisions get so heavy, there are answers that I need – you know it’s time to just be still and let God love me…..” (click the link). This was the gift last night. A reminder that God knows where to find me, and that sometimes I just need to be still and not try to figure things out….easy to say, hard to do.
