Be still

Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (NIV)*

Oh, be still —

know that he is God.

Let doubts reside,

questions cease.

Let disappointments fall away,

regrets die.

Let wrongs be forgiven,

mistakes forgotten.

Let God be God —

on the pedestal of life.
