I am going through a horrible time with one of my closest friends right now. Long developing hurt feelings have bubbled to the surface, and I am helpless, losing sleep, unable to concentrate, waiting for a resolution. In my perfect world every conflict would immediately bring the two parties to a table with a bottle of wine and it would be talked, yelled, hugged out. She does not operate that way, and so I wait. In my mind I’m writing emails. I’m making phone calls. I’m explaining, arguing, pushing to fix what is broken. But I’ve learned in the past that sending these shots in the dark never end well. Knowing this, however, does nothing to ease my mounting frustration and pain.
I turned on my car this morning to take my kids to camp, words to my friend spinning in my mind, when I heard the song, “Be Still and Know That He Is God” by Steven Curtis Chapman. The song was at the point where Steven sings,
“Be still and know that He is God…..be still and know that He is God…..be still…..be speechless.”
My eyes welled up with tears. My mind cleared.
God always finds me where I am, gives me what I need in that moment.
I will be still….and know that He is God.
