Sometimes you just need to be quiet.

 

Sometimes you just need to turn off the noise.

 

Sometimes you just need to focus on the basics of life.

 

Who you love.

 

Who loves you.

 

Who died for you.

 

Who gave you life forever.

 

What really matters.

 

And what only acts like it matters.

 

What’s worth fighting for.

 

And what is worth fighting to get away from.

 

How to hit the “off” button on the TV remote.

 

And to step around the messes on Facebook.

 

Because God calls us to “be still” but He doesn’t want us to be still forever.

 

“Be still and know that I am God.”

 

And then go out and love your neighbor and your cyber neighbor as yourself.
