    Oh, I can relate. I often complain about just how busy my life is and yet I don’t realize that I’m using that same excuse to get out of listening to Him. I need to always keep my priorities in check because He should always be my #1.

    I can so relate to that and am the same way. Then all the sudden I feel like I am crashing and just need to BE still, completely, and listen to Him speak in the silence.

    oh. i totally get this. every so often, i just lay down, some quiet music on (in my headphones) and i ask God to just come do whatever He wants in me – say whatever He wants – and if for nothing else, i am still.

    there’s rest in that. i love it.

    thanks for the reminder that i need to do that again soon.

    beautiful post.

    I so get this … but mine is kind of reversed. In the quietness of my day I seem to idle sometimes at a rate that is anything but still in my spirit. Overwhelmed sometimes at the vastness of what I could do. Odd … I just began seeing this clearly today; because of this prompt.
    I agree my creativity was put in me by God … and He intends I use it. I must find a way to be still and not paralysed by my freedom.
    Thank you, great post.
