Be Still

Be still

“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)

The Lord encourages us to be still.  That is a notion our society is not familiar with.  We are encouraged to be human doings and not human beings!

Jesus rebuked the waves saying “Peace be still!”  We need to be still and not rush about trying to fix everything and not be content to just sit with something!  Doctors want to fix us and not just walk alongside us in our illness experience!

When we are faced with a new diagnosis or challenge we want to rush about and fix things and make them right.

Right now I am caught in a game of doctor tag as they try to decide whether or not to do a repeat kidney biopsy and put me on chemotherapy.  My sons are impatient with the process and are not comfortable with the concept of waiting.

My acute kidney failure  secondary to lupus is worsen following a 2 week hospitalization in February. My rheumatologist is confering with my nephrologist to come up with a plan.

The chemotherapy will possibly span over

a year or more.  It’ll be unpleasant with many unknown side effects … nausea, fatigue, hair

loss, etc..   Wait on the Lord and he shall bring all to things pass.

I don’t know what my future holds but I do know who holds my future!

Who holds your future?  How do you still your self, especially, your thoughts in times of crisis and confusion!

Father God, I pray that you will help me to lay back in your arms and trust where you taking me in my life and be still and know that You are God! Amen and Amen!
