Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth.

- Psalm 46:10

Over the past few months I have been on a few long meditative hikes. On a few of these hikes I have been asked to meditate on this verse. On one of these hikes I remember attempting to pray through the verse one word at a time, but some how instead of saying to myself "know that I am God" I would hear myself say "know that I can handle this". It was like God was gently whispering me, "trust me" "I am bigger than this" "I am bigger than this mess" "I am bigger than your pain". Since moving to SF I have felt like I haven't caught a break. If it wasn't one mess it was another, still I have consistently felt that God has been active. I have just often needed to listen.

So tonight as I get ready for bed I am thinking of this verse and reminding myself:

Be Still, and know that I am bigger than anything you are facing,
be still and know that I created the life you are living,
I am redeeming it, I am present in every part of it!
I will be known among all people,
I will be celebrated everywhere.
Be Still and know that I am God.
