Too Often, I Forget!

Too often I forget to 'be still and know.' How easy it seems to just go through each day forgetting to even spend one minute in silence alone with God. If we'll be still, open our hearts, and listen.. really listen, ..then we just might hear.

Today I was reading where my bible happened to be opened to. Jeremiah chapters 8, 9 and 10. I came upon this verse and thought it very fitting to go along with a new video I had been wanting to do. The verse is Jeremiah 10:13 but let me start reading a little before that:

But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.

He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures. -Jeremiah 10:10-13

Love you:-) You are very right, we need to make time EVERY day to be still and listen to Jesus. I think somedays he shouting at us to listen to him and we still don't listen. *sigh*
